It’s that time again, where gamers unite to vote for Madden NFL’s cover campaign. The lucky sixteen candidates (none of which have appeared on a Madden cover before) will go head-to-head tournament style where only one will stand victorious on the cover of Madden NFL 15.
Hosted by ESPN.com, there will be four rounds of voting, culminating in the official announcement of the winner on ESPN’s Sports Center on June 6th at 6pm.
First-round voting comprises two “regions” of eight seeds, and of the top four seeds, three are quarterbacks, including No. 1 seed Cam Newton of Carolina. The other No. 1 seed is cornerback Richard Sherman of the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks.
The entire list of candidates are: Richard Sherman, Alshon Jeffery, Jimmy Graham, Eddie Lacy, Demaryius Thomas, Luke Kuechly, Colin Kaepernick, Nick Foles, Cam Newton, Antonio Brown, Jamal Charles, A.J. Green, LeSean McCoy, T.Y. Hilton, Andrew Luck, and Alfred Morris.
Madden NFL 15 will release August 26th for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360.
