FIFA 19 players have struggled to get into the game this afternoon after facing messages saying you lost your connection to the EA Servers.

It means that players are currently unable to play matches or access parts of the game that require access to the EA servers.

The issue seems to also be affecting other EA games with problems with Battlefield 1 arising as well.

Here is what we know about the server problems so far.

Why is FIFA 19 down?

The EA Help Twitter account has said that connectivity issues are stopping players from getting into the game at the moment.

According to reports online it seems to be affecting players worldwide with reports from the UK and US as well as across Europe and Asia.

It comes just hours after FIFA 19 was given an update that addresses various gameplay features in the game, which could potentially have some involvement in the server problems.



The patch addressed various goalkeeper and volley issues that occurred during gameplay as well as adding updates to the Ultimate Team mode.

We're aware of connectivity issues affecting players at the moment and are working to resolve them. Thank you.

When will FIFA 19 servers be back up?

An exact time for when servers will be working again hasnt been given and it is hard to estimate when the game will be working again.

The problems were first reported at around 13.30 BST according to Down Detector which means it is likely to at least last another hour or two while developers try to address the problem.

We will post any updates here when they are available.
