Youth are invited to represent their favorite NFL teams in the Play Football Madden NFL 22 Youth Club Championship via EA Sports Madden NFL 22. 

Formerly branded as the NFL FLAG Youth Club Championship, the rebrand under NFL Play Football aims to attract a broader group of youth players.

“Last year we saw tremendous success with our NFL FLAG Youth Club Championship, which brought together youth from all over the country to compete in a one-of-a-kind Madden tournament,” said Roman Oben, vice president, football development, at the NFL. 

“Rebranded under Play Football, we hope to recreate that same excitement with RCX Sports and reach a wider group of new, enthusiastic youth players who will represent their favorite NFL teams and put their skills to the test for a chance to compete during one of the NFL’s largest weekends.”

The virtual tournament allows players to play from a remote location. During registration, players will select their favorite team to represent and their preferred platform, PS4 or Xbox One. To level the playing field, two age brackets are offered, one for the younger than 13 and the other for the younger than 17.

Registered players will compete in one of 32 individual NFL Club tournaments on Dec. 11 with the goal to reign supreme as Club Champion and advance to the final round of 32 from Jan. 29 to Jan. 30. Custom team created prize packets will be awarded to the Club Champions.

“We’re excited to work with NFL Play Football to bring back the Madden NFL 22 Youth Club Championship this year,” said RCX Sports CEO Izell Reese. “This event is a great way for young football fans from across the country to connect and feed their competitive drive online.”

Registration is free and spaces are limited. To learn more about the Play Football Madden NFL 22 Youth Club Championship and to register, visit https://rallycry.gg/playfootballycc/
