When do FGS Swaps start in FIFA 22

October 21 – The blurring of ‘sporting’ boundaries and rights ownership that eSports throw up is brought sharply into focus again today with the EA Sports-sanctioned FIFA 22 Challenge.

This event will also introduce the viewership rewards program for FIFA 22, with exclusive in-game items like an Adidas 99 Kit. As a result, viewers of this event will be the first recipients of this year’s exclusive in-game rewards. Moreover, EA will reveal a new FIFA Ultimate Team content update, in partnership with Adidas during the broadcast.

Played in the 2vs2 format, the competition sees four pairs representing Team EA, play four pairs representing Team Adidas – in effect Adidas has transitioned its traditional sponsorship activity from kit to team ‘ownership’ for this event.

Team EA

    Timo Werner (Chelsea) and SaNkHs (Case Esports)
    Adebayo Akinfenwa (Wycombe Wanderers) and Tom (Excel Esports)
    Diogo Jota (Liverpool) and Tekkz (Fnatic)
