FIFA 23 is finally here, which means it’s time to get the squad together again.

Kick Off, Ultimate Team, Pro Clubs and more offer tons of opportunities to play with your friends – and get in valuable practice ahead of the incoming World Cup Mode.

The game launched in early access form on September 27 for everyone else on September 30.

Below, we detail how to add friends on Nintendo Switch, Xbox and PlayStation consoles, as well as the steps you’ll need to take if you’re playing on PC. Let’s kick off.

How to add friends on FIFA 23

If you already have a friend you want to play with, they will automatically appear as someone you can invite. If you don’t, we expect the steps to be as follows:

  • Launch FIFA 23
  • Head to the Friends tab by pressing R2 (PlayStation) / RT (Xbox) or ZR (Nintendo Switch) – this will bring up your existing friends and will allow you to invite them
  • Press Triangle / Y / X (Nintendo Switch) and type in your friend’s Gamertag, Nintendo Online ID, PSN or Origin Account name

If this fails, which is unlikely, you can also add friends manually.

On PlayStation, simply:

  • Head to the Friends tab
  • Insert your friend’s Online ID or name into the search box
  • Then add them

On Xbox you need to:

  • Open up the side menu and head to the People tab
  • Press “Find Someone”
  • Type in your friend’s username and then click

And on PC, just follow the below:

  • Sign into Origin
  • Click Friends and then “Add a Friend”
  • Search for friends with their real name, email or EA Account ID
  • Click View Profile and you’ll be able to send a friend request

And that’s it. Remember, there’s a slightly different method to playing co-op with friends on FIFA 23, which we’ve detailed right here.

Why can’t I add friends on FIFA 23?

Remember, if FIFA 23 is anything like last year, you won’t be able to play with friends if you are playing next-gen FIFA and they have the last gen version of the game. Make sure you both have the same version of the game in order to play together.
