Madden Ultimate Team gives fans the opportunity to collect star players, set lineups, and complete collections to earn coins, special packs or elite players and items.


Create your Ultimate Team and assemble your squad with legends from the past and present. There are lots of ways to build an Ultimate Team, so use these tips to get started. 


Start by choosing a captain for your squad. This important decision helps give your team an identity. For example, make sure to grab a running back if you want to work the ground game. 


After opening your first pack, you will have to set your depth chart in order to maximize your roster. Be sure to set multiple lineups, which will make it easier to change your team’s style as you go.


Complete collections to earn coin and item reward bonuses that help improve your team. Remember, the tougher the collection, the bigger the reward.


One of the keys to building an Ultimate Team is wheeling and dealing on the Auction Block. Find good value on an item or stock up on assets to improve your team’s depth. By staying flexible with your items and lineups, you can look for good value while staying one step ahead of the market.


The all-new chemistry system in Madden NFL 25 is something that players must take into consideration in Ultimate Team. Choose one of four different styles on offense and defense to give your team an identity and boost their ratings. Learn how to maximize your chemistry and put your Ultimate Team over the top.
