EA removes Diego Maradona from FIFA22

Diego Maradona has been removed from FIFA 22 “due to a legal dispute” over his image rights, EA Sports have reported.

D10S will not be available in the FIFA Ultimate Team, Ultimate Draft and Soccer Aid World XI packs, the video game company said.

EA Sports regrets the situation caused by the legal dispute over the ownership of Diego Maradona’s image rights. Initially, the video game company negotiated the image rights with Stefano Ceci, the Argentine’s former manager, but an Argentinian court ruled he didn’t have the legal permission to make such a deal.

Until everything is resolved, Maradona will continue to not appear in FIFA22.
