Madden Ultimate Team Building 101



Build your Madden Ultimate Team via solo challenges and coach upgrades. 

Once you've created your Madden Ultimate Team, you'll want to build them up as quickly as possible. But what's the best way?


Before you take your Madden Ultimate Team online to face players around the world, improve your squad via Solo Challenges. When you fire up the mode for the first time, you’ll have the opportunity to face the defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens, who you can defeat for a nice payout. You’ll have the opportunity to improve your coach and team chemistry as you progress through your team’s single Preseason and eight Regular Season solo challenges.


A team is only as strong as its leader, and it's no exception in Madden Ultimate Team. Upon completing your first Solo Challenge against the defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens, you'll be able to upgrade your coach and team chemistry, the keystones for team development in Madden Ultimate Team.

You'll have another opportunity to upgrade your coach after your first preseason challenge. With a win there, you’ll receive a coin reward and an upgraded silver tier version of your team’s head coach. Item tiers start at bronze with the most common, and proceed to silverfor uncommon, gold for rare, and elite (red) for ultra-rare. The best, most rare tier of items is legendary (blue).


Madden NFL 25 is now available for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Celebrate the franchise's 25th anniversary and buy your copy today.
