Madden 22 Ultimate Team: Gridiron Forge challenges and rewards

The Gridiron Forge program in Madden 22 will deliver an array of objectives that will carry great rewards to upgrade your team.
The championship teams are forged by obstacles as it is very difficult to develop greater abilities on the football field without tasting bitter defeat. As with everything that happens in the football world, EA has found a way to virtually replicate it and give us a very real NFL experience right on the verge of our controllers in Madden 22.

Madden Ultimate Team debuts a brand new program called Gridiron Forge where you will be able to sharpen your playing skill so make sure to strike it while it’s hot (pun intended).

If you are opening Madden 22 for the first time as you are taking advantage of pre-ordering the MVP or the Dynasty edition, you will not be able to see the Gridiron Forge program on your solo challenges menu.

In order for your to unlock those assignments, you will have to have to complete up to week four in the campaign solo challenges, so make sure to complete those objectives first.
