FIFA 21 (FUT) connectivity issues on Xbox being looked into

FIFA 21 is one of the most popular football simulation video games available on consoles like Xbox One and Xbox series X/S.

However, the latest FIFA 21 Ultimate Team (FUT) Weekend League, which was to end today, is still live until May 25 due to an issue.


It seems that EA’s servers are down as FIFA 21 (FUT) players are facing connectivity issues on Xbox.

As per multiple reports, Xbox users are unable to play FUT matches for the ongoing Weekend League or otherwise.

This is why the FUT Champions Weekend League has been extended while EA is trying to fix the said issues.

@EAHelp how long will Xbox servers be down???

@EAHelp @EASPORTSFIFA I’ve got 19 games to play and your servers are down.

According to EA Help, the games team is aware of the FIFA 21 server connectivity issues on Xbox.

Also, a fix is being looked into for the same which means affected players may soon be able to play FUT matches.

However, this is still based on our speculation as no ETA for the said fix has been provided in the acknowledgement.


Since a lot of reports regarding the said issue started coming in, the FUT Match Creation feature was disabled for Xbox.

We will be disabling Match Creation in FUT for Xbox players while we investigate reports of connectivity issues.

This was done in order to investigate the server connectivity issues but the said feature was later re-enabled.

FUT for Xbox is back online and Match Creation is enabled once again.

Hopefully, EA resolves the said issues soon as Xbox users are missing on their Weekend League matches because of it.


That said, we will be back with more details as and when new information becomes available so stay tuned.
