The “Madden NFL 2019” Championship Series is set for Tuesday, according to a press release.
The kickoff coincides with the release of the “Madden NFL 19” Hall of Fame edition, which launches Aug. 7 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The standard edition of “Madden NFL 19” will launch Aug. 10.
ESPN will be broadcasting select tournaments from the Madden Championship Series (MCS) across its various networks.
Todd Sitrin, SVP and GM of the EA Competitive Gaming Division commented on the anticipated growth of the Championship Series.
“Madden NFL 19” recently stirred some controversy last Friday when it was found that free agent Colin Kaepernick’s name was very obviously bleeped out of a Big Sean verse in the song “Big Bank,” featured on the game’s soundtrack.
