This is what EA says about the problems in FIFA 23 today
What does EA say about the server problems? The “FIFA Direct Communication” channel reported the problems via Twitter.
They would be investigating reports from players that they are currently unable to access FUT and Volta. A solution should be communicated as soon as it becomes available. There is currently no further information on this. We will keep you up to date on MeinMMO at this point.
Can I still play FIFA 23?
It is still possible to play the offline modes of FIFA 23. For example, you can now scout the best talents in career mode and send them on a title hunt or play against the AI or friends in a kick-off.
In Ultimate Team, on the other hand, you can currently only access your team in the web app or the companion app. There you can still use the transfer market or play squad building challenges.
The first players are already calling for the Weekend League to be extended. This has happened in the past when server issues made participation in FUT Champions impossible or severely delayed. It remains to be seen how long the problems will last and how EA will react to them.
Otherwise, the FUT Fantasy Event is supposed to start in FIFA 23 today. This begins at 7:00 p.m. in the evening.
