EA Sports Accepting Uniform Designs for Relocated Teams in Next Madden

Posted February 22nd, 2014 at 11:45 am


A competition has been opened for those who wish to design potential logos and uniforms for teams in Madden’s Franchise mode. Submissions will be accepted only until March 7 and additional details on how to proceed can be found in the blog posting here.

The designs will be used for the relocation cities in Franchise that were introduced in Madden NFL 25. There is no prize for having one of the eventual selections besides appearing in the credits and receiving a copy of the game. No limit has been placed on the number of designs that can be submitted prior to the deadline.

While a Teambuilder feature for Madden (which originally had been planned before ending up just with NCAA Football 10-14) would be ideal licensing issues while needing to continually monitor for possible copyright infringement appear to prevent that from being possible. This competition then looks to act as a compromise of sorts.

    This should be good because some of the uniform designs that the game made we’re horrible! In my franchise the Rams relocated to Mexico City and became the Golden Eagles and their color scheme was bright red and fluro green! So horrible!

    Ugh, I was really hoping for a Team Builder after last year’s limited options.

    Hionestly, why don’t they just add a feature that allows you to design them in the game? it would make it much easier and allow people to put a personal spin on things. Also, they should consider allowing players to edit their team’s jerseys/logos/ etc. I can’t count how many times i wanted to update the Browns logo or jereys without having to move them.

    Good to see the focus is still on all of the right things in the land of Tiburon (AKA where all of your shitty developers go)

    Looks like the NFL 2k deal fell through.

      Madden was never going to be cancelled anyway, so that really never had any bearing on it.

    Well, EA is known for going after Teambuilder users with legal notices. Natural Motion had the right idea by disabling a lot of edits once the user took his team online. To me, if you’re concern is legal hot water, disabling is the best way to go.

    Looks like they are following Valve’s lead and trying to get free/cheap labor from the community instead of fixing up things themselves.

    EA’s motto must be “When you get lazy call on the fans” they stopped picking the cover athlete. Now they want fans to design uniforms, honestly they probably will look way better. That uniform in the picture does not look any different than the PS2 relocation uniforms back in the day.

      Or they might want to give an opportunity to the fans to put something in the game…….

    Doesn’t matter, this game will be 100% trash without the ability to create draft classes.

  • Philly504

    What happen to the create a team feature they should add that back. Do you think they will add that back I didn’t like teambuilder?

    I don’t see why this is being looked at so negatively. If everyone thought like this comment section no one would send in submission with their art work. Fact of the matter is some people want their artwork to be put in the game, they don’t look at it as free labor … Y’all act like these people are going work on EA’s Cars and A/Cs….

    How about just adding the ability to upload PSD files so people can make and share all their designs?
