Attention, devoted Madden Ultimate Team community. We are thrilled announce the Rookie Premiere Program. Consider this our loyalty reward to you, the most dedicated players in the MUT community, for the endless hours you’ve put into MUT 18 going H2H, grinding solos, scouring the Auction House, and never giving up in your perpetual pursuit of owning the most elite roster in MUT. And the best part is that your devotion to MUT 18 gives you a jumpstart in MUT 19. Read on for the full details.
The Rookie Premiere Program includes 10 Rookie Premiere players.
Player items available via will include these five offensive players.
QB Sam Darnold
RB Saquon Barkley
WR Calvin Ridley
TE Hayden Hurst
OG Quenton Nelson

Complete the Rookie Premiere sets in MUT 18 and you’ll receive a high OVR version of that specific player and receive his special Rookie Premiere version in MUT 19 when you log into Madden NFL 19 for the first time.
That’s right. Any of the Rookie Premiere items you’ve earned in Madden 18 will carry over into your Madden 19 MUT roster. Boom. Keep in mind that if you’re switching to PC to play Madden 19, your content won’t carry over. The platform that you earn the loyalty on is the platform that you’ll have to redeem it on next year.
Every time we release a new player edition, that player you’ve unlocked in MUT 19 will undergo a ratings improvement.
The Rookie Premiere version of that player will be updated to match the new player version’s stats. The player chemistry and art won’t change, but his ratings will.
Complete any player set to earn a 99 OVR of that player in Madden 18, and unlock his player item in MUT 19 with ratings that will update as new versions of him are released in MUT 19 (through February).
Add Power Up players for Rookie Premiere Patches. Patches are needed to complete the Premiere Hero Sets.
Also, yes, there will be solos. We figured you might enjoy that.
