2v2 competition will become a mainstay in FIFA 22, with players teaming up to take on opposing teams. This won’t replace the regular 1v1 competition that FIFA players are familiar with, but offer another dimension to the game.

In addition to that, there will be two major 2v2 FIFA 22 tournaments this season: Team of the Year and Team of the Season Cups. The winning duo from each competition will qualify for the FIFAe Club World Cup.

As expected, the traditional 1v1 format will feature heavily in the FIFA 22 Global Series and remain an integral part of the competition.

When does FIFA 22 Global Series start?

The FIFA 22 Global Series is due to kick off on November 27, 2021. If you’re looking to compete, you have to make sure to register to FGS 22 by October 4, 2021.
