NFL FLAG Launches Madden 21 Youth Club Championship

NFL FLAG is launching the inaugural NFL FLAG Madden 21 Youth Club Championship Presented by Subway® restaurants, inviting youth athletes from across the nation to represent their favorite NFL teams and compete on the digital turf.

Players can represent one of 32 different NFL clubs throughout the Madden series, hosted on Battlefy, and compete in a 1-on-1, double elimination bracket for a chance to be a finalist in the virtual Championship event around the 2021 Super Bowl and win a PS5 or Xbox Series X and NFL Gear.

To participate, players must have access to Madden NFL 21 on Xbox One or PS4 – they are not required to be an NFL FLAG athlete.

Registration is free and open to players between the ages of 8 to 15. However, spaces are limited so be sure to register now.

“We wanted to open up this opportunity to all young NFL fans so that everyone can experience the excitement of representing their team on Madden NFL 21,” said NFL FLAG Executive Director Izell Reese. “With the support of the NFL, Subway and Battlefy, we’re able to offer a once-in-a-lifetime event for gamers across the country and fulfill the competitive drive that many of them are missing off of the football field. Athletes are eager to play, and we anticipate over 30,000 participants, making this the largest youth Madden esports tournament ever.”

Event operator Battlefy will host 32 NFC and 32 AFC tournaments in December – 16 on PS4 and 16 XBOX One – leading up to the Youth Club Finals February 4-6. Finalists will compete in a live, virtual championship event during the 2021 Super Bowl weekend.
