How to switch Affiliations in NBA 2K22 Next Gen is something that many MyCareer players are wondering about as they explore the new City for the first time.

Dictating everything from where players get their Daily Spin, to their allegiance for Season Events, perhaps the most important part of choosing the right Affiliation, however, is that you get a 20% experience boost for playing games on your home court. For those looking to figure out how to do this for themselves or for their squad, here is how to switch Affiliations in NBA 2K22 Next Gen MyCareer.

To change your Affiliation in NBA 2K22 Next Gen, you need to go to the front door of the city hall of which you want to switch to. For example, to switch to the Beasts of the East, you would go to their city hall in the bottom right of the central part of the map.

This is essentially the same system as the one used in NBA 2K21 Next Gen, so those looking to switch Affiliations should do so ASAP not only because transferring this week has no penalty, but also because certain sides can reach full capacity at times.

  • North Side Knights
  • South City Vipers
