*Note: This has not been an issue nor tested on newer versions of FIFA (FIFA 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20 or 21).

Learn how to fix crashing and freezing in FIFA on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, or PC.

If you’re the owner of a next-gen console and FIFA14, chances are you’ve run into some problems with freezing or crashing.

This crashing and freezing is not related to broken consoles, scratched discs, or anything of the sort. It’s related to your profile in FIFA14 and it’s easy to fix.

Once you make a quick change in your profile you’ll be able to enjoy FIFA14 for Xbox One or PS4 without all the freezing and crashing involved.

Step 1: Disconnect your Xbox or Playstation from the network

Make sure you disconnect from your network before moving forward. You can do so by going to your Settings > Network > Disconnect from Network

Step 2: Start FIFA

Make sure you have closed or quit out of FIFA after disconnecting from the network

Step 3: Navigate to ‘Customize > Settings’

This may be different in newer games, but you’re looking for general game settings.

Step 4: Change the Referee

Switch to any referee, other than the default one.

Step 5: Navigate to ‘Profile’ tab. Click on ‘Save Profile’.

Make sure you save your profile before reconnecting. There will be a pop up modal that asks you to confirm your changes. Click ‘yes’

Step 6: Restart, Reconnect, and Reboot FIFA

Always try to reset your network to flush the cache and reprioritize devices.

    May I just say what a relief to discover someone that genuinely understands what they are discussing on the internet. You actually understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people should check this out and understand this side of the story. I was surprised you aren’t more popular because you most certainly have the gift.
