How to earn FGS Swap Tokens in FIFA 22

Once the Global Series gets underway, all fans have to do to start earning FGS Swap Tokens is watch 60 minutes of any event.

In a weekend with multiple events, watching for an hour still qualifies you to receive a Swap Token.

You may only earn one token per weekend, so don’t feel obliged to watch every second of each event if you’re only in it for the rewards.

FIFA 22 Global Series SBC rewards

FIFA 22 FGS SBCs

Four separate SBCs are live in FIFA 22 right now, each with different requirements and pack rewards. Naturally, the more you earn – the better the pack.

Depending on the number of tokens earned by watching the Global Series, players can choose to spend them on a less valuable SBC with fewer requirements or save up for the best rewards.

All four SBCs are repeatable and will remain active throughout the season, so you can constantly earn tokens to submit and keep the rewards coming.
