We established our Competitive Gaming Division with one goal in mind: to make stars of all our players. Whether you’re the reigning winner of the Madden NFL 17 Championship Series, or the most dominant player amongst your group of friends, we’ll give you a competitive experience that will be meaningful to you. With that in mind, we’re extremely excited for what we have in store for you for season two of the Madden NFL competitive gaming season.
Today, we’re proud to announce the launch of the Madden NFL Club Championship, a landmark competitive gaming event featuring all 32 NFL Clubs. This is the largest competitive gaming commitment ever by a professional sports league, and gives you the opportunity to represent your favorite NFL team to become the Madden NFL Club Champion.
The Madden NFL Club Championship features online qualification for tournaments set at NFL stadiums, cultural landmarks and more. Once the final 32 players are identified, one per NFL team, they will compete in the Madden NFL Club Championship Live Finals, a tournament occurring first at the Pro Bowl Experience in Orlando, FL and culminating at the Super Bowl Experience Driven by GMC in Minneapolis, MN.
“Our first season of Madden NFL competitions engaged millions of players and ignited the passion of NFL fans worldwide,” said EA’s Chief Executive Officer Andrew Wilson. “Now we’re taking competitive gaming and the NFL to an unprecedented level, with Madden NFL players competing to represent all 32 NFL teams. The Madden NFL Club Championship is the opportunity sports fans have been waiting for to live their dreams, and compete on a global stage for their favorite team.”
“Competitive gaming and eSports are one of the most exciting ways to engage a larger, younger and digitally savvy NFL audience,” said NFL Commissioner, Roger Goodell. “Collaborating with EA to create the Madden NFL Club Championship presents a unique opportunity to capture the excitement of NFL action and the passion of our fans with competition that anyone can participate in.”
We can’t wait for you to experience the Madden NFL Club Championship, one of three currently announced Madden NFL Championship Series EA Majors. EA Majors are the pinnacles of the Madden NFL Championship Series with only the top players qualifying. The Madden NFL Classic happens on October 20-21 and the Madden NFL Challenge on December 15-16.
Want to represent your favorite team and get in on the action? Competition kicks off in less than 24 hours! You can battle for the right to represent your favorite team with the launch of Madden 18 G.O.A.T. edition on August 22nd, available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
