The English Football League (EFL) have withdrawn broadcast access to the Russian Federation due to the invasion of Ukraine.

In a statement released by the EFL on Tuesday, March 8, the EFL said 'iFollow and other club streaming services have been withdrawn.'

This means that football supporters in the Russian Federation will be unable to use any service provided by the EFL and their clubs.

The statement in full reads: "Following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the subsequent humanitarian crisis that is unfolding in the region, the EFL has suspended the broadcast feeds of its matches in the Russian Federation.

"Access to the EFL’s iFollow service and other Club streaming services have also been withdrawn in the territory.

"Echoing the views of the Premier League and other organisations around the world, the EFL remains deeply concerned by the ongoing conflict. As has been demonstrated at EFL grounds around the country, ‘Football Stands Together’ with the people of Ukraine and all those impacted.

"The EFL is also supporting the British Red Cross’ Disaster Emergency Committee appeal and further donations can be made here."
