FIFA 22 players unable to play VOLTA, 'there was an error accessing server data', issue acknowledged

FIFA 22 is the latest installment in the long-running FIFA franchise. Developed by EA Vancouver and EA Romania and published by EA Sports.

Ever since its release, several issues such as the one where FUT Store was displaying just one pack in the My Packs section and FUT Qualification points not carrying over have ruined the gameplay experience.

The game also introduced some new VOLTA mechanics that allows players to use special abilities like Power Strike, Pure Pace, and Aggressive Tackle.

But, as it turns out, many FIFA 22 players are unable to play VOLTA. Players say whenever they try to access the game mode, they are greeted with a “There was an error accessing server data, please try again” message.

It is really frustrating since is a fun-to-play mode where players can also enjoy several online mini game modes. You can see in the image below how the error looks like.

My player is rate 91 in VOLTA FOOTBALL and can’t just lose it that easly. Please help me.

After a couple weeks, it still says “There was an error accessing server data” when I try playing Volta. What can I do? Like the title says, I get an error message every time I try playing Volta, I can’t even get into the menus.
I just wanna play Volta for the Arcade mode, they ruined the other online mode for me by not using your own squad. I had so much fun playing with one or two friends like it was Pro Clubs, but that’s ruined since other players won’t ever pass or defend.

Even reinstalling the game seems to make no difference, indicating that the problem is somewhere on EA’s end. Fortunately, EA Help has commented on the matter and said they are aware of the FIFA 22 VOLTA error.

But there was no ETA on when it will be fixed, which means players might have to wait a couple of days before the issue is resolved.

Moreover, it looks like FIFA 22 players who are able to play VOLTA are reporting that they are not finding any matches when trying VOLTA Squads.

Am i the only one who cant find team mates on pro clubs drop in? I tried every single solution but my problem is not on my internet side because i can play any other online game fine but what is pro clubs and volta squads i cant. Pro clubs: Impossible to matchmake a team mate in drop in, i only get solo lobbies [1 out of 20 i get maybe 2 team mates] Volta: No match found / forever loading when i do find team mates / stuck forever at initializing load screen Im the low % of the population in fifa that doesn’t play ultimate team i only play pro clubs and volta online.

I would gladly play VOLTA squads if it worked. Is the matchmaking broke? I can’t ever seem to find a match

Some say that the issue persists since the game was launched. But with EA yet to say anything, it is unlikely that the matchmaking will be fixed in the coming days.

Nonetheless, We’ll keep an active track of the developments on this one and update the story when EA fixes FIFA 22 VOLTA issues.
