Are you good enough to win your own Madden NFL championship?
Football seasons's over, but it's still going on
Although pro football season has been over for nearly two months, the 2016 NFL season lives on at EA Sports with the Madden NFL 16 Championship. Players will test their skills in the new Salary Cap Ranked mode, currently in beta and available on PS4 and Xbox One, within Madden NFL 16 Ultimate Team and in Draft Champions Ranked for their chance to win a share of the $50,000 prize in a championship tournament that culminates this summer.
Salary Cap Ranked mode requires players to build the best "Ultimate Team" possible while staying under a set salary cap total, demanding strategic thinking and careful planning. While any player in a fan’s Ultimate Team binder is eligible to be used in Salary Cap mode, each player carries a cap value and it will be impossible to load up the field with unstoppable talent at every position. Will fans opt to put their best player on the field at the expense of other roles? Or will they intentionally bench their stars in the name of creating a balanced team?
Those competing in Salary Cap Ranked and the Season 2 Draft Champions Ranked ladders will have a chance to climb the leaderboards and compete in live events in the hopes of taking home the grand prize at EA Play. In the coming weeks, players on Xbox One and PS4 can compete in Salary Cap Ranked to reach the top of the ranks, with the top 64 on each console being invited to the first round of the competition. Madden Challenge Finalists, Draft Champions Ranked Season 2 finalists and Salary Cap Ranked finalists will all come together to compete for the Madden NFL 16 Champion.
