How to earn rewards from FIFA 22 Challenge
To earn any FIFA Global Series 2022 rewards, all viewers must have a Twitch and an EA account. After creating a Twitch account, viewers must link their EA and Twitch accounts together. After this, all you need to do is watch the FIFA 22 Challenge event and redeem your rewards on Twitch. Viewers can also earn more rewards by watching other FGS events throughout the season.
Furthermore, the FGS swap tokens will also return for this season. The more tokens viewers redeem, the better rewards they get. Viewers can upgrade their team with some Fifa Ultimate Team packs. All FGS events this season, including the FIFA 22 Challenge, will have no less than five rewards. Aside from player tokens, rewards will include kits, trophies, crests, stadium dressings and FGS balls.
