The NFL, EA, and ESPN sign deal for Madden esports broadcast series

January 26, 2018 1 min read

With esports seemingly on the rise and NFL ratings nearly decimated, the Father (Disney/ESPN), the Son (NFL), and the Unholy Ghost (EA) have penned a deal to bring a multi-year broadcasting plan of Madden NFL Football to ESPN and its family of channels.

Slated to start this weekend at the NFL Pro Bowl, the Madden NFL 18 Club Championship will be broadcast on ESPN News and consists of 32 players, each controlling a team in the National Football League, vying for the league championship. (My condolences to whomever drew the Browns for this.) The finals will be broadcast from the Minneapolis Convention Center at the Super Bowl Experience on February 1, and is receiving an upgrade of sorts to ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes.
