Players running into this issue will be met with a message that reads, “Cannot communicate using SSL”. While this may sound complicated on first look, it’s actually just because you haven’t linked your EA Origin account to your PlayStation network ID. Linking these two accounts is a quick and easy process, and you can do so by following the next few steps:

Linking Your EA Origin and PlayStation Network Accounts

  • Click the Account icon located at the top right corner of the screen and choose Sign In.
  • Enter your PlayStation ID username and password in the following fields to login.
  • When prompted, choose to link your EA Origin and PSN accounts together.

That’s it! Your EA Origin and PlayStation Network accounts should now be linked, and you’ll be able to continue playing FIFA 23 without issue.

To ensure that you’ve correctly linked your accounts together, you can verify by clicking the same account icon on the official EA website and navigating to Account Settings. In that menu, click Connections. You should see both accounts linked on the following page.
