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.

fifa-17-down

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.

  • Adrian Wilko Wilkinson

    Fifa 16 ut android eveytime I finish a game i.e Starter cup, Bronze cup, Silver cup and Gold cup it
    says EA servers are not available at this time. Please check your network connection. Normally this happens when they do update the game and your in the middle of a tournament and normally by forfeiting the tournament fixes this issue, but it hasn’t resolved the issue this time. It’s a complete piss take that a massive company in EA cannot keep a game free of bugs and sever issues.

  • BantaBrigade

    Isn’t possible for me to join a FUT game. Since around 5 o’clock today GMT time it just says ” searching for opponent” but doesn’t..

  • Kraskin

    FIFA 16 Down

  • fraser

    Ea are a multi million pound company and they cant even keep their servers up. We all give ea money to open packs and everyone knows the fifa points are so overpriced but we still give the money. All we expect them to do is to keep their servers.

  • ABURT

    Still get kicked every time I add a player… Over a week now

  • Jay

    Their servers are down atm. I downloaded the game yesterday & it was working fine but suddenly it stopped working and im getting error ‘EA servers are not available at this time. Please check your network connection, or try again later.’

  • Jack

  • Jack

  • Vonwald

    Same Here. Annoying as hell

  • Jack B.

    Every time I try to enter the buy fifa points screen it sends me to the packs where there is only bronze silver gold and promo packs and no fifa points. when I try to buy a pack with fifa points when I have none it tells me to add points. when I press yes it replays with “you currently can’t add fifa points. try again later” I have been trying for a long time now!

  • Sam

  • gordon

    Wait till u get a inj or susp player and u cant swap them u wont be happy then

  • Craig

    Got it working. Created new squad, adding players one at a time and testing if it crashes. Some it would on so didn’t use them. Added enough to play a game. After that can use any player I want and even use the original squad. Ridiculous work around for a company like ea but with a little playing around it seems to work. Not tested fitness or cards issues which others have also had.

  • Nico Zambrano

    side note, is any currently having UT problems?

  • Nico Zambrano

    try to create a concept squad, some players i can put in no problem,but a select few, when i try to put in the squad, kicks me out of UT completely. Anyone else having this problem?

  • alfie

    I can’t build a team or list players

  • Jboi C

    So I am a converted PES player coz apparently FIFA is better? The gameplay is better u have the licences but ur servers are terrible lagging game 1 in 4 and now this? I have spent over £300 on ur terrible packs for a rare Lewandowski that’s worth 55k and now I can’t even play a game anyway. There should b some apology packs given to people that have spent money in the time the servers were down because without gamers u have nothing and I speak for all the other people that have invested money and time in ur game we should b compensated in some way.

  • Chris Murray

    Been buying ea games for years and considering ea as the biggest name in gaming they have the same issues every time,after they make the money off the games they don’t give a f*** about anyone cos they’re pockets are already lined,Wld be a different story if the gamers stood up and said f*** u ea we ain’t buying ur games anymore,they wouldn’t be long reimbursing or rewarding gamers then.

  • OFFICIAL EA

    I’ve had 3 players suspended for 8 matches
    Any 1 else having this. Problem

  • Rhyswilliams

  • Kittipong Wangkham

    Why l can’t play. From Thailand.

  • Damien

    Mine’s doing the exact same thing and my player fitness’s ain’t going down either after I play a game VERY STRANGE

  • Damien

    It only started working after I applied a 20% squad fitness card to my team then it let me change my team without kicking me and also let me play against another player REALLY REALLY WEIRD

  • Damien

    It’s finally working but and this is a big but my player fitness’s are staying at 99 after I play games and there games tally goes up but there goals stat stays the same even when they scored in the previous game so there’s still a few little bits that need ironing out

  • Mr steal your girl

    My players fitness didn’t go down and won’t let me change my team. Not that surprised do it’s Ea

  • Chris

    Right people thi has been doing my head in for last few days but I think I’ve had a break through. I created new squad and put a player on team then exited and if didn’t kick me off added another player doing the same process. This is on ps4 in the uk. I still cannot sell people and there is one player who I can’t add to team so bought another version and that worked. Good luck everybody and I hope it works for you if try.

  • rko

    there are more bad stuff than good ones in fifa, you dont do good tourneys anymore, you have to go against handicap, random disconections, fails, maintance, and this,

    the question is, why am o still here??? i hate you ungrateful fifa, what will you give us as a reward?

    Exactly….NOTHING…

  • ziad

    same here . found a way to get 100 chemistry but they wont let e add the players needed

  • ziad

    i agree

  • ziad

    i cant change my squad it says severs down

  • lee

    I can play but only one game at a time as everytime I finish one game and sort my team ready for the next , I hit the search opponent button and it boots me out so I go back into ultimate team and it lets me play a game then does this all over again ….. Some of us have spent 50 quid on this game plus money on fifa points for packs …. Compensation should happen coz this is shocking EA terrible customer service

  • Marcus

    Can play a game. But EA don’t give me the coins. It says server is down.

  • Rhys cornish

    Absolutely shocking once again from EA!!!!

  • Joshua Achampong

    I still can’t send players from my club to the transfer list or make changes to my squad. Even if I try to make a new one. They don’t keep red cards or lose fitness after matches

  • Jonathan Folland

    Not able to build teams or change players or sell players at all for the past two nights now! This is not what we pay for EA!! Seems to me this community challenge could be the cause but this needs sorting ASAP

  • Joshua Achampong

    Yup. Same

  • Simply

    Terrible EA….it’s been 24 hrs plus now. Bought a 90 rated player but can’t add him to my team or change formation or sell anyone. Pathetic…..

  • Damien

  • John

    Doing my nut in, can’t sell anyone, can’t play the game, I wana sell my team, that’s all.. Ffs EA, how hard can it be, just fix it. Give us 100k packs as this is awful

  • Eden Jakov

  • Corey Jones

    this is so broke for me, using pc version, try to put hummels into my team, get kicked off ultimate team and hummels is back in the club, also couldnt put hernandez as a ST, but works as a CAM? the hell EA

  • Regan Baines

    Can’t put any players into my first squad, so I have to use a non rare team and as a result I am getting relegated, seems like EA aren’t trying to fix the issue

  • Damien

    It’s annoying if you take into consideration how much ea charge for these games 50 quid a pop and this is the service we get, or ironically don’t get

  • Damien

    It would be nice if ea compensated us for all this hassle and irritation

  • John

    yes still happening – anything to do with Brexit?

  • Damien

  • Rob

    Now when I go on to the companion app it does the same but instead says this player no longer exists

  • Luke
