Just replied in other thread but it’s 100% An issue with EA servers not accepting a child’s account. 

 

Set up as an adult and it works fine. 

 

At least they can play whilst EA figures out how to sort the issue out as I’m pretty certain 90% of players will be under 16 and it seems crazy they can’t sort a parental control issue on such a popular game.

You’ll have to set up a different Nintendo account and verify yourself as above 13 and and the email address holder etc.

Ok..

No idea what happened, but just now - after it failing to connect, I then selected the same profile again and have gone in and it works!

Hi there, 

 

My ten year old son had been having the same problem. Just logged on as me as you advised and he's online now.

 

Thank you very much for your post.
