FIFA 21 Servers Down – Major Outage 23rd October 2020

FIFA 21 has launched with immense popularity.

However, things haven't gone completely smoothly. As of right now, the servers for both the web app and the game have been down.

Players have been left not being able to access the FIFA 21 online features at all.

We have created a guide showing all the error messages and tools you can use to easily monitor the servers.

FIFA 21 Error Message

It starts with the player trying to connect to the online mode with:

[Player Name] is connecting to the EA Servers...

FIFA 21 In-Game Message
Connecting to EA Servers FIFA 21

Players are then greeted by a new message:

The EA servers are not available at this time. Please try again later. See ea.com/unable-to-connect for additional information.

2nd FIFA 21 In-Game Message

On PS4, users are then told to 'Press R3 to reconnect'. Unfortunately, this simply puts the player back in the original loop of error messages.

Fortunately, we have a LIVE FIFA 21 Server Status monitor which instantly updates players on the latest status.

We also have a LIVE FUT 21 Web App Server Status monitor which instantly updates players on the latest status.
