Tottenham Hotspur Become First Soccer Club In Madden
What if I told told you if a football club from London became the first club to appear in a football game from America because they be played football games in their London stadium? If it sounds a bit confusing. It isn’t but it is a big occasion as Tottenham Hotspur, a Premier League soccer team, will have its branding available in Madden 22.
Also known as Spurs, the team will have specially made uniforms for the American Football game available in Madden’s Yard mode. The designs, based on Spurs’ home and third kits (the England word for “uniform”) have been redesigned to match the football aesthetic. In a statement on the Spurs official site, Spurs Chief Commercial Officer, Todd Kline, had this to say about the addition.
“We are excited to continue our partnership with the NFL by hosting both of the London Games at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium this year. Through this latest collaboration with our joint partners EA SPORTS, we now become the first Premier League club ever featured in Madden, enabling fans with a passion for both sports to access both our home and third Nike kits whilst playing the game.”
The addition isn’t just a love letter to the club. It coupled with NFL games traveling across the pond for the first time since 2019. The NFL’s Atlanta Falcons and New York Jets played a game in the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in North London on October 10th marking the first non-soccer event in the brand new venue. American football is growing in popularity in England, and this crossover is sure to make Spurs supporters happy.
