RUSSIAN teams are set to be removed from FIFA 22 in light of the country’s invasion of Ukraine.

  FIFA 22 took the strong decision after Russia decided to invade Ukraine last week. The Russian national team and all of the country’s domestic sides will be taken out of the game.

  “EA Sports stands in solidarity with the Ukrainian people and like so many voices across the world of football, calls for peace and an end to the invasion of Ukraine,” EA Sports said in a statement on Wednesday.

  “In line with our partners at FIFA and UEFA, EA Sports has initiated processes to remove the Russian national team and all Russian clubs from EA Sports FIFA products including: FIFA 22, FIFA Mobile and FIFA online.

  “We’re also actively evaluating related changes to other areas of our game.

  “We will keep our communities up to date on any action taken, and thank players for their patience as we work through these updates.”

Currently, Russian sides CSKA Moscow, Lokomotiv Moscow and Spartak Moscow all feature on FIFA 22, as does the Russian national side.

  The video game publisher has already taken the decision to remove players such as Mason Greenwood and Marc Overmars recently, but this is the first time an entire country and its clubs have been removed.
