The Premier League has suspended its broadcast deal with Russia following the country’s invasion of neighbouring Ukraine.
The move will take effect immediately, meaning Thursday’s four matches will not be shown in the country.
The matter took only 15 minutes of a four-hour meeting of all 20 clubs in London on Tuesday to agree.
The English top flight also says it will donate £1m to support the people of Ukraine.
The TV rights for the Premier League were owned by the Rambler Group. The company was in its final year of a three-year deal to show matches in Russia.
In a separate move, the Football Association has also suspended its deal with Russia.
