With the NFL Draft kicking off tonight, EA and ESPN have announced details about this year’s Madden NFL 15 Cover Vote.
This year, there are 16 players filling out the bracket to determine who will land on the cover.
Fans can begin voting once a day via ESPN.com/maddenvote. Each Thursday, the results will be revealed during NFL Live at 4 p.m. ET on ESPN. Players involved in the bracket will also join various programs on ESPN as they will make their case for being on the cover. The two finalists will then be announced live from LA Live Plaza during the 6 p.m. hour of SportsCenter on Friday, June 6.
“Every year, ESPN and EA Sports continue to go bigger with the Madden NFL Cover Vote, and there’s no better way to kick off the vote for Madden NFL 15 than having last year’s winner and NFL legend Barry Sanders announcing it on stage at the NFL Draft,” said Raphael Poplock, vice president of games and partnerships for ESPN. “We are building on our momentum over the last three Madden NFL Cover Votes to deliver an engaging experience that puts the cover in the hands of the fans, which have resulted in some of ESPN’s most successful social activations to date.”
Madden NFL 15 is set to release on August 26 in North America and August 29 in Europe for the Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.
