By Ashley Woodcock, 3 years ago
If you're a fan of the Madden franchise from EA and happen to love drawing and designing, then this newly announced competition is highly likely going to be of interest to you. Madden fans have an amazing opportunity to see their very own designs featured in the next Madden game. Thanks to Madden NFL 25's Connected Franchise mode, players can relocate one of the 32 NFL teams to a different city "with three options for team logos & uniforms". With this contest, any of the teams logos & uniforms can be redesigned with your custom touch.
