Uefa will support president Michel Platini through an appeal against his eight-year ban, the organisation has said.
In a statement, the body - which represents football associations across Europe - said it was "disappointed" with the decision by Fifa's Ethics Committee to ban and fine Mr Platini.
Uefa has taken note of the decision of the Fifa Ethics Committee to suspend Michel Platini for eight years from all football-related activities.
Naturally, Uefa is extremely disappointed with this decision, which nevertheless is subject to appeal.
Once again, Uefa supports Michel Platini's right to a due process and the opportunity to clear his name.
Michel Platini will be able to attend Euro 2016 matches in France next summer despite his Fifa ban - but only if he buys a ticket as a fan.
