Madden NFL 25 Cover Goes to Barry Sanders

Posted April 24th, 2013 at 6:00 pm


The cover campaign for Madden NFL 25 which began back on March 11 with 64 participants – some current stars and others legends from the past – has finally produced a winner. 40 million votes were cast throughout the process and with 58% of the returns Barry Sanders prevailed over Adrian Peterson in the finals for the honor of being featured on the cover.

Check out the official cover art here.┬áThis makes it two consecutive years with Barry Sanders featured on an EA Sports cover after winning a competition to share the space on NCAA Football 13 with Robert Griffin III. Sanders has also now appeared as a playable character in both NCAA and Madden and it’s safe to assume that he will be back again as someone to choose for the “Player” path within Connected Franchise mode.
