According to a post on Kotaku, EA will be shuttering online service for a number of its older sports games as of February 2, 2010. The full list:

UEFA Champions League 07 PC and X360
Facebreaker X360 and PS3
Fantasy Football 09 X360 and PS3
FIFA 07 PSP, PS2, PC
Fight Night Round 3 PS2
Madden 08 Wii
Madden 08 PC
Madden 09 Xbox
Madden 09 Wii and PSP
March Madness 07 X360
NBA 07 PSP, X360
NBA 08 PS2, PSP, Wii
NBA 09 Wii - Europe only
NBA Street (2007) PS3 and X360
NCAA Football 08 PS2
NCAA Football 09 PS2
NASCAR 08 PS2
NASCAR 09 PS2
NASCAR 09 PS3 and X360 - Europe Only
NFL Tour PS3 and X360
NHL 07 PSP and X360
NHL 08 PC
Tiger Woods 07 PC
Madden 09 X360 and PS3
Madden 07 X360

A couple of interesting items here: NCAA Football 09, released in 2008, is apparently still going strong on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 because only the PlayStation 2 version will be shut down. Meanwhile, Madden NFL 09, also released in 2008, is being shuttered on the PS3 and 360. Also, NASCAR 09's online is being shut down in Europe only--since it's the last remaining console NASCAR game for the foreseeable future, I wonder how long US diehards will keep it going?

Is anyone still playing any of the games on this list, online or offline?
