Game overview/synopsis

EA Sports’ long-running American football franchise is still going strong, and while it’s obviously not as popular in the UK as it is in the States, the sport has a steady, growing fanbase on our shores.

While EA has been making more of a concerted effort in esports lately, the publisher is no stranger to esports. In fact, it first dabbled in competitive gaming with its Madden Challenge some 15 or so years ago.

Madden is a relatively new esport compared to other titles, but in 2016 EA Sports announced the $1m Madden Championship Series, outlining their ambitions in Madden esports in a big way, and the global scene has grown since.
