The EA servers are currently down again, so don't be surprised that you didn't get into Ultimate Team or were kicked out of the game. And yes, be angry, something like that destroys a Weekend League rank that you have wanted to reach for a long time.

EA Server Down: Why FIFA Online Isn't Working

October 14, 2021: As is so often the case, the reason is as simple as it is annoying: overload. Since many FIFA players are hyped for the Division Rivals Rewards, the EA servers are simply overloaded. So if you get in somehow, you'd better wait a little longer for the next game. The risk that you will be kicked out is still quite high. Opening the rewards shouldn't be a problem, though.

When Will FIFA Servers Come Back Online?

On the website of downdetector, you can easily see whether the problems are increasing or decreasing. We don't work for EA, of course not, then the servers would still be running, so we can't tell you anything other than: wait. When the big run on the rewards is over, the EA servers usually continue to work normally and are no longer down.

Our tip: Take a look at our FIFA section, on which days major events are coming up. Then you can roughly estimate when the EA servers will be down.

Connection to EA Servers interrupted: What can I do?

If you see the message: "Your connection to the EA servers was interrupted. Log in again ..." Blah blah, then you actually only have the following options:

  • Check that your internet connection is active and working
  • Restart FIFA
  • Restart your console

You can hardly do more. Wait until EA gets everything back on track. Until then, you can also play offline. There are enough modes.
