FIFA 17 EA servers and web app
FIFA 17 is powered by EA servers that will go down under heavy demand, or run into other problems in certain situations. When the EA servers are not working, then it could be a total outage hurting many other games and not only FIFA 17.
The FIFA 16 web app started running into problems from the moment it went live with a gateway timeout in browsers so how will 17 fair? Although at launch they always have teething problems due to demand. This took FIFA Ultimate Team servers down for a short time, but these issues will take place again through planned maintenance or even unscheduled on occasion.
You can access support with the FIFA 17 UT web app on the right of this page through official channels. You can also see status reports from the FIFA community below, or leave problems you are having today to share with others.
