We have a word of warning to those who have just logged on to FIFA 17 and intend to play for a long session. FIFA 17 servers are down right now for FUT 17 sudden maintenance from EA on November 4, 2016.
The developers are not saying what the problem is, but it is going to be a nightmare for those that have just wasted 15,000 coins earlier and were in the middle of a FUT Draft when the servers when offline.
You can keep checking our FIFA 17 outage page for updates on when the FUT 17 servers will be back up but hopefully it will just be a short maintenance.
Given that it started at 6PM exactly UK time, we have a feeling that this was planned by EA and that something has happened. Could surprise updates be on the way which require EA to take the game down first?
Let us know if you can’t play FIFA 17 online right now with matchmaking disabled.
