When I try to go online with FIFA it always gives me this message

we're sorry but you are not permitted to register the online pass

I tried to find it in the PSN STORE to try to redownload it but I couldn't find it. I never registered my online pass before and never tried to play online because of the message they all way give me when i try to play online.

How can I fix this?

Did you, by chance, buy this game used? – Fluttershy Jan 15 '13 at 0:42
no it was sealed.. it came with the PS as a gift – Harout Jan 15 '13 at 0:52
@Fluttershy any idea? – Harout Jan 15 '13 at 1:00
Somehow, I suspect EA's key authentication has gone a little loopy. – Frank Jan 15 '13 at 1:12
@Harout With it being a new copy, I have nothing. =( – Fluttershy Jan 15 '13 at 1:21

Contact EA

There are also less reputable online outlets who will re-seal used games, so there is a chance the code has been used, so returning the game for an exchange is another option.
