How To Watch The Madden NFL 19 Bowl

Find out how to view the crowning event of the Madden 19 Championship Series, and get the full Madden Bowl tournament schedule.

Madden 19 Championship Series

This is it. The finale to the Madden 19 Championship Series, the Madden Bowl.

For months, the best Madden competitors in the world have been building up to this crowning moment, to determine once-and-for-all who will take home the most coveted MCS belt (and the lion's share of the $200K prize pool) of the entire series. 

It's been a long road to the Madden Bowl. Since last fall, players have been grinding online ladders, showing up at walk-on tourneys like the Classic, and climbing the MCS Points Leaderboards. But only the top competitors in the Madden Championship Series have qualified for the Bowl, either by finishing top two at the Classic, top four at the Club Championship, top two at the Challenge, top two at the Last Chance Qualifier (April 21), or by ranking in the top six in MCS Series Points. Only 16 players are left, and it all goes down April 25-27 at EA SPORTS' broadcast studio in Redwood City, CA. 

How To Watch

Catch all three days of the Madden Bowl streaming live on EA Madden NFL's Twitch channel. As with previous Madden Championship Series events, there will be more than one game played at a time during the early stages of the contest. So fans will be able to watch the secondary matchup via the Twitch Squads feature on the channel.

Fans can also catch the Madden Bowl Championship Final live on ESPN2 on April 27 at 7:00 p.m. ET. Scroll down for full broadcast details.
