Madden Championship Series Returns with $1.7M Prize Pool and Six In-Person Events


The Madden Championship Series, EA SPORTS’ premier competitive league for Madden NFL, is gearing up for an exciting new season set to kick off later this year.

Global Esports Extravaganza

Anticipation builds as the forthcoming season promises six thrilling in-person events and a massive total prize pool of $1.7 million (~£1.3 million). Adding to the excitement, the new season welcomes more gaming platforms into the fray and embraces cross-platform play throughout its duration.

As a global spectacle, the MCS warmly invites players from the US, UK, Germany, Canada, and Mexico to join in the exhilarating esports action.

Throughout the year, the Madden Championship Series hosts a series of electrifying esports tournaments. Climaxing this enthralling journey is the much-awaited Madden Bowl—an esports extravaganza akin to the real-world Super Bowl, often held early in the year. This season’s iteration is jam-packed with more tournaments, presenting players with increased opportunities to engage in the thrill of LAN experiences.

Electrifying E-Football Action from Start to Finish by Madden

Setting the stage for an epic start, the season commences with the special Ultimate Kickoff tournament in August, culminating in a grand LAN final on September 6th, a day prior to the NFL Kickoff game. With a substantial $200,000 (~£156,000) prize pool, this tournament serves as a momentous celebration, marking the official commencement of the new MCS season, much like the NFL Kickoff does for the real-world NFL.

Following this exhilarating start, four successive Ultimate Challenge tournaments will follow, each boasting LAN finals. Players will navigate through a ladder stage, leading to an intense single-elimination bracket, culminating in the gripping LAN finals. These live events are scheduled to unfold in October, November, December, and January, promising an extraordinary gaming spectacle.

And lastly, the much-anticipated Ultimate Madden Bowl, featuring a staggering $1 million (~£780,000) prize pool, awaits in early 2024, coinciding with the exhilarating Super Bowl. While EA has kept some details under wraps, expect more updates as the tournament’s date draws near, promising an awe-inspiring culmination to an action-packed season.
