Hey Madden Ultimate Team Community,

We wanted to take a moment to talk about how the Golden Ticket program will work this year in Madden 21 so that you can better prepare and participate this week.

Players will be able to participate in the Madden 21 Golden Ticket Program by logging into Madden Ultimate Team to receive 3x Golden Opportunities. Each Golden Opportunity is a pack which contains either a coin quicksell or a chance at a Golden Ticket collectible. The dates and times that you will need to log into Madden Ultimate Team to get your 3x Golden Opportunities for a chance at a Golden Ticket collectible are below:
  • Wednesday, April 7th from 7-9PM ET
  • Friday, April 9th from 9-11PM ET

Each day (Wednesday and Friday) we will be giving out 10 Golden Ticket collectibles for a total of 20 Golden Tickets for the entire program. Unlike last year, this year, players on all platforms (i.e. Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, PC, Steam and Google Stadia) will have a chance to pull for a Golden Ticket collectible.

Our teams will be monitoring who received the Golden Ticket collectibles. Our goal is to reach out to all Golden Ticket winners through email by Friday, April 16th to get their information about the Golden Ticket player they would like to create.

Note: Please make sure to update your Madden Rewards email address as this will be the way we will be reaching out to players.

We will outline in the form what rules apply in regards to Golden Tickets, but we wanted to share some early information about these rules.
  • Golden Ticket players must be built off a base player item that has already been released in Madden Ultimate Team this year.
  • Golden Ticket players cannot be players that have retired from the NFL during the 2020 season (In other words, Legends are good; however, players who retired this year are not. E.g. Drew Brees, Philip Rivers, etc.).
  • Golden Ticket players cannot use Icons from the Superstar KO mode.
  • Golden Ticket players will get a physical chemistry slot.
  • Golden Ticket players will get a team chemistry slot. Team chemistry will operate the same way it does for the Veterans program in that the team chemistries available will only be those that the player played for in the NFL in a regular season game.
  • Golden Ticket players will get a secondary position chemistry slot (if it applies to them).
  • Golden Ticket players will be stand alone player items and will not be eligible to go into Power Ups.
  • Winners get to choose which Tier 3 Buckets they want available on their Golden Ticket player. The only restriction is it must be from an archetype from that position. (E.g. Winner could choose for Michael Vick to have a Field General, Strong Arm, Improviser and Scrambler QB ability bucket).
  • Golden Ticket Players will receive a 5th ability slot.
  • Golden Ticket Players still need to hit the thresholds for abilities. (E.g. Winner could choose Tom Brady but it will be difficult for Brady to achieve the speed requirement for Escape Artist).
  • Physical ratings will be handled by the MUT Team but winners will be able to choose up to 3 skill ratings they want to see boosted.
  • Golden Ticket Players will not be a Limited Time (LTD) item and will be in packs for the remainder of the year with an increased opportunity to pull them from packs the first 48 hours after their initial release in game.
  • Winners get to choose card art from any program released except card art from the Legend LTD and Ultimate Legend Career Edition programs.
  • Winners can choose the archetype for ability buckets (Total of 5).
  • Winners have 10 days from being contacted to finish designing their Golden Ticket player. If a winner is unable to finish designing their Golden Ticket player in this time period, they will forfeit this opportunity.
  • The Madden Ultimate Team reserves the right to refuse any Golden Player ticket selection.

Please note that Golden Ticket player creation will be based on a first come, first serve basis for Golden Ticket winners. This means that whoever contacts us first is guaranteed to get their choice of player, but this may not hold true the further along we go in the process. There will be no duplicate Golden Ticket players on the same side of the ball.

Depending on how quickly we receive Golden Ticket player information after contacting winners, we are looking to release 2-3 Golden Ticket players every Friday. Make sure to follow @EASPORTS_MUT for details on when the first release of Golden Ticket players will occur in game.

We look forward to bringing back Golden Tickets this year to Madden Ultimate Team! We hope you do as well.
