FIFA 23 Maintenance Times

FIFA Online Maintenances

EA periodically takes the servers down and runs maintenance on the servers that host FIFA 23. When they are planned, it is scheduled maintenance. However, it is extraordinary maintenance when there is an unexpected issue, and EA is forced to fix it.

If you log into the game to see a ‘FIFA Online Maintenance’ message, Electronic Arts is working to provide you with the best gaming experience. The outage in-game message usually informs about the titles and game modes affected and the starting and end times.

The most common thing they do is upgrade the server software to match updates to the game. It involves pushing server code, restarting scripts, and enabling new content. Less frequently, maintenance is about hardware.

Most of the time, it doesn’t take more than a couple of hours. However, in rare situations, it can go up to six hours. After that, you will be able to continue playing as usual.
