"Hopefully soon! It's being worked on around the clock."
"We can't say for sure because the server issues are widespread right now. No one can log into the games, so it's our first priority. Once the servers are back up, we'll get you squared away."
"We're seeing some recovery, but the system isn't at 100% quite yet. It's getting there"

We'll update you as soon as anything changes.

Independent website DownDetector tracks social comments around outages and is currently monitoring the situation, as well as numerous people unhappy with the outage.
Down Detector initially logged thousands of reports from fans unable to connect to the game at around 6PM today.
The issue is mainly affecting users in the UK and Europe with Down Detector initially registering over 1000 reports from users experiencing issues with EA Servers and it appears to be rising.
Equally, this doesn't appear to be an issue isolated to FIFA 19. It looks like all EA Games are down currently, including EA's Origin service.
EA Sports official Twitter account for FIFA 19 has not yet commented on the outage, however, EA Help, the official account has responded to the huge number of complaints currently being thrown at the official account.
Writing on Twitter EA Help told fans:
"Were having some trouble with our services right now, so you might not be able to get into your games or create a case with us on http://help.ea.com . Were looking into it, and well let you know when we have more info."
Its not clear at this time what has caused the server problems, or how long they might last.
