It is almost the same but there is no consensus between researchers about the classification of fascia. Connective tissue is often considered a wider concept. Fascia is a part of connective tissue. According to (Schleip et al, 2019), the fascial system is part of the wider concept of connective tissues, and a fascia is a subset of tissues within the fascial system.
