- FIFA 20 out now on PC, PS4, Xbox One in India
- The map of India in FIFA 20 omits Jammu and Kashmir
- This has been the case for at least three years in FIFA
New year, new game, same old problem. For supposedly the third year in a row, the map of India in the latest instalment of EA Sports’ FIFA franchise — FIFA 20 — does not feature Jammu and Kashmir, according to an image circulating on Twitter. The issue here isn’t that the parts of the Indian state that are occupied by Pakistan and China are missing from the map of India in FIFA 20. That would still be considered illegal in India, though it would be in line with how the international community has often depicted the state. It’s that the entirety of Jammu and Kashmir is missing altogether from the map of India in FIFA 20. Selling products — digital or otherwise — that incorrectly depict the map of India is illegal in the country.
