by Damian Seeto

EA Sports has now announced that FIFA 21 and other FIFA games will be down for scheduled maintenance later today. It should be down during the early hours of July 20th if you live in the United States.

FIFA 21 isn’t the only game being affected by the maintenance today. Other games that will be down include FIFA 20, FIFA 19, FIFA 18, FIFA 17, FIFA 16 and FIFA 15.

Online modes such as FUT and VOLTA FOOTBALL match creation will be affected. The maintenance in question is going to last for around four hours. A further notice will be issued if maintenance will last longer than that.

You can read more from the announcement below via the FIFA Direct Communication Twitter page.

Maintenance schedule

“We have scheduled maintenance coming up on July 20, from 7:30 AM to 11:30 AM UTC. FUT & VOLTA FOOTBALL match creation will be disabled 30 minutes prior to the maintenance in order to avoid potential mid-match disconnects. During this time, you may be disconnected or unable to connect to EA Servers on all platforms. The following Titles will be impacted: FIFA 15/16/17/18/19/20/21.”

There does not appear as if a new update is being dropped, but we’ll keep you posted. FIFA 21 is out now for PC, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One and Google Stadia.
