Is it you, or is it EA?

Let’s keep it real: No gamer likes when their online match gets interrupted by a connection issue. Or even worse, if the service is completely down, whether it is due to scheduled maintenance or due to some unforeseen circumstances (malfunctions, errors, DDoS attacks, or different types of outage). Prima Games will show you how to find out if FIFA 22 is down or not, and how to check the server status so that you can know whether you need to locally troubleshoot the connection issue or not.

How to Tell if FIFA 22 is Down and How to See FIFA 22 Server Status

The first source you need to go to is the official FIFA Twitter account which is used for official communication with the general public. You ought to check the activity there first (no need to have a Twitter account) and scroll past the pinned post to see what they wrote in the last 24 hours, just to be thorough enough.

The second source is the official EA’s Support Page. You will see on the right side the (hopefully) green Server Status button, which you can click, and a drop-down menu will come up and display server statuses for all supported platforms (PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Stadia, Nintendo Switch).

Here is what it looks like in action:

The third and final source is the page for FIFA. DownDetector is a cool tool for the public to use for reports of outages that they have. A high amount of reports by the community, of course, indicates that there are some problems with the service (not just for FIFA, you can use DownDetector for basically anything). Oftentimes, DownDetector will have the answer to the “Is X down” question faster than the officials.
