Design Logos and Uniforms for the Next Madden NFL

UPDATE: We are aware of some submissions not being uploaded, so we are extending the contest until Monday, March 17th at 11:59 PM ET.

We’re giving Madden fans the opportunity of a lifetime. Now you can re-design team logos and uniforms with a chance to have your designs featured in the next Madden NFL.

In Madden NFL, gamers have the option to relocate one of 32 NFL teams in Connected Franchise mode to another city with three options for team logos & uniforms. All these teams are now up for a re-design.

So grab your sketchbook and harness your creativity as only the best designs will be featured in-game. Winners will receive not only design credit, but also a copy of the next Madden NFL on the platform of their choice. But hurry, submissions will be accepted no later than March 17.

Before you get started, be sure to read the official rules.

We encourage you to design the following:
