Video game developer EA Sports has joined the campaign to stop Russia from the continuous attack on the people of Ukraine by removing their Russian national team and all Russian clubs from Fifa 22.
EA Sports Joins Russia Ukraine War
The suspension of all Russian national teams and clubs from all competitions by Fifa and Uefa after the country’s invasion of Ukraine is to let the Russian authorities know they are not in support of the war. EA Sports said it “stands in solidarity with the Ukrainian people” and “calls for peace and an end to the invasion”.
They released a statement saying: “We’re also actively evaluating related changes to other areas of our games.” “We will keep our communities up to date on any actions taken, and thank players for their patience as we work through these updates.”
Greenwood, second time since the release of Fifa 22 that an original feature of the game has been removed. The first is Manchester United’s Mason Greenwood, the English winger who was axed following his arrest earlier this year after assaulting his girlfriend.
The Manchester United forward was removed from active squads and suspended from appearing in Fifa Ultimate Team packs and Ultimate Draft. Russia is now the second to receive such punishment.
