Important Notes

If you’re experiencing frequent bugs and glitches when trying to play FIFA 22 shortly after release, have a little patience. Wait a few minutes and try again.

Keep in mind that players literally  flood FIFA’s servers as soon as the game is officially released overwhelming the servers. This often causes download problems, connection issues and more.

FIFA may be a bit bugged shortly after release. Certain glitches and bugs may have gone undetected. Check for updates and install the latest FIFA updates and patches as soon as they’re out.
