If you’re looking to play a bit of late night (US) or early morning (Europe) FIFA 16, you may well find it down for maintenance. A post from EA Sports on twitter says the Ultimate Team mode will be down from 10pm (25 April, Pacific US) and 6am (26 April, UK) today.
The game is set to come back around five hours after those scheduled times, so 3am Pacific and 11am UK. The maintenance will be performed across all platforms.
The brief statement doesn’t go into any specific detail about the reasons for said server maintenance, but it may well be in preparation for the annual Team of the Season activities that were announced at the weekend. These will include special Team of the Season squads, new packs, and Team of the Season tournaments for FIFA 16.
