If everything is green on the Server Status Icon page for FIFA 23 then we recommend using the following methods:

  • You can use resources like the @EAHelp Twitter account, as they are good about releasing information about issues relating to their servers and online services.
  • Use downdetector, as it’s community-driven, with live reporting from players facing similar issues. This is the quickest way to know whether you’re alone or if it’s a possible server issue.
  • If you don’t spot an issue on downdetector or the other listed resources, consider resetting your modem or router, and your console. It’s a simple, but effective troubleshooting method that works more often than you think.
  • If there are issues connecting to the servers despite no known issues, then, and only then, should you consider uninstalling and reinstalling FIFA 23.

Consider these methods, constantly checking online first before altering your installation. With these server status issues affecting popular games like NBA 2K23 and more, this should always be your first step.
