EA gaming servers have been affected for a while now, preventing players from playing FIFA 20 and other popular games on their consoles. This was likely due to a major spike in user activity over the past few weeks which also affected a few other online gaming services.
As players try to log into the FIFA servers, they are greeted with error messages, with several users taking to Twitter to raise the issues. Here’s what users had to say:

FIFA 20 isn’t the only game that has stopped working. Other popular EA games including Battlefield 5, Star Wars Battlefront 2, Madden, and Apex Legends have also been affected sporadically, along with the company’s popular service Origin.
EA has acknowledged the issue on Twitter and assured users that it is working to fix the issue. It is not clear how extensive the outage is, as the company is yet to give an ETA on a fix. However, it will provide further updates once it has more information.
We're still working on the issues with our games and services. We don't have any updates right now, but we'll let you know when we have more info.— EA Help (@EAHelp) April 14, 2020
In addition, EA Sports has also disabled match creation in the Ultimate Team/FUT and Volta modes as part of the wider issues.
Hey folks, we have temporarily disabled FUT and VOLTA FOOTBALL match creation while we continue to investigate connectivity issues impacting EA titles.— FIFA Direct Communication (@EAFIFADirect) April 14, 2020
