EA Sports has announced a partnership with GameStop and Virgin Gaming to create the “Battle of the Gridiron” Tournament. Anyone who enters between August 30, 2011 and September 18, 2011 will be eligible to compete for $100,000 worth of prizes. The contest will start on September 11, 2011 and will run through October 16, 2011 and will take place entirely online.
Included in the $100,000 worth of prizes are four VIP trips to Los Angeles and entry in the Madden Challenge Series which includes over $1 million in prizes, four VIP trips to LA to watch the Madden Challenge Series, gaming credits for future tournaments, and entry fees for the Madden Challenge Series.
Of course if you feel like playing a little more locally (internet locationally speaking, of course), you can always join the GotGame Madden Community and win some prizes while playing with friends. But more on that later.
