How do I get FGS Swaps tokens in FIFA 23?

FGS Swaps tokens are special player tokens you earn by watching a fixed amount of the FIFA Global Series competition. These tokens are granted via Twitch drops from the official EA Sports Twitch channel, with each one offered on a different day of the competition.

By watching the set amount of competitive FIFA in the livestream, you'll get one new FGS Swaps token added to your account. These are like other player tokens in the game, usually represented as a 60-69 OVR player designed solely to be used in SBCs.

Of course, before you get the FGS Swaps tokens, you'll need to ensure your Twitch account is properly linked to your EA Sports account. Otherwise, you could watch it for hours and still get no rewards.

When it's all linked up, it's simply a matter of waiting until EA Sports Cup events are on Twitch, and tuning in. They take place every Monday from October 17 to December 5. After that, they occur on January 16, January 18, and January 21.

What can I use FGS Swaps tokens for in FIFA 23?

Once the EA Sports Cup events begin, a series of FGS Swaps SBCs will appear in FIFA 23. There are a total of 25 tokens up for grabs this year, and as such a bunch of SBCs you can put them in to snag extra packs. Even better, all of the SBCs are repeatable, provided you have more tokens to use. The rewards are as follows:
