Russian Parliament Wants to Ban Fifa For 'Gay Propoganda'

There you go, that’s now a headline, you win 2016. Apparently Members of parliament in Russia want to ban Fifa unless the game is changed.

The issue seems to be that the Russians aren’t happy about the free downloadable feature which allows players to play in a rainbow flag jersey for the Fifa Ultimate Team feature in the game.

The Russian politicians claimed that the feature was ‘Gay propoganda’.

The feature was actually a tie in to Stonewall’s Rainbow Laces Campaign which is trying to stamp out homophobia out of football.

They don’t want to back down either, they say that if the game is not changed they will move to ban Fifa.
