The official countdown for FIFA 21 early access has begun and if you’re wondering when it starts, you’ve come to the right place. We now know the official FIFA 21 EA Play start time. 

PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC players might be heading into the game’s WebApp version from September 30, but soon enough EA Access is opening up for them too.

The game’s developers have started up a live countdown timer, and when it runs out the game will launch for a 10-hour trial, as usual.

There is a live countdown embedded on the official FIFA 21 website, which shows that when the clock strikes zero the early access fun will begin.


According to this information, FIFA 21 EA Play will start up on October 1, 4pm (BST).
