Electronic Arts (EA) game company announced that it has removed the Russian national team and Russian clubs from FIFA 22, one of the most popular computer games in the world. Announcing the decision on Twitter, EA said that they did it "in solidarity with the Ukrainian people".
FIFA and UEFA banned the Russian national team and clubs from all international matches. Ukraine also demanded that the gaming industry take more steps.
Ukraine's Minister of Digital Transformation and Deputy Prime Minister Mikhailo Fedorov called on all gaming companies and esports platforms to close their Russian and Belarusian accounts.
It is important which team you choose when playing FIFA. Players want to fulfill their football dreams from their living room. Being suddenly unable to choose the club or national team you support will have a profound effect on the enjoyment Russian players get from FIFA 2022. Moreover, they had the opportunity to play these clubs while paying for this game.
EA has taken a similar step in the ice hockey game before. After the concert, film and sports industries isolated Russia, it was only a matter of time before a similar step was taken in computer games. Some esports events banned Russian teams from participating.
But EA's move will affect a wider audience as it affects one of the most popular games in the world. It is possible that other game companies will take similar steps in the coming days.
It is the highest level governing body of football and futsal worldwide. It was founded on May 21, 1904 in Paris. Headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland.
The pioneers of the FIFA movement were French football player Robert Guerln and Dutch Hirschmann, who also presided over the organization for a while. He left FIFA in 1920, stating that with the outbreak of World War I, England and the British Isles could not be under the same federation as Germany and its friends. Turkey was included in the federation in 1923.
The second dispute between the British federations (England, Scotland, Wales and N. Ireland) and FIFA broke out during the 1928 Amsterdam Olympic Games due to the IOC (International Olympic Committee)'s desire to organize a football tournament independent of FIFA. The British federations again withdrew from membership, although FIFA accepted this initiative. This separation continued until 1947, and in 1947 the four federations became FIFA members again.208 national football federations are members of FIFA.
