EA Sports is getting ready to pull back the curtain and reveal their next cover star for Madden 20.
Best of all, fans of the American Football sim don’t have long to wait before they find out which athlete is gracing the box, with the announcement likely set to coincide with the start of the NFL Draft.
For those unaware, today’s 2019 NFL Draft – which lasts for three days – is taking place in Nashville (the home of the Tennessee Titans) for the first time ever.
At the time of writing, there are no clues as to who might be stepping up to front the game, but EA Sports has been teasing the reveal with some videos.
One for instance, can be seen below with The Rams Aaron Donald. Although again, there’s no indicator who might be the face of the game this year.
That said, whoever does take on the mantle will be hoping to avoid the dreaded (and very much unproven) Madden curse that seems to hit most cover stars.
It’s kind of obvious what we’re talking about. You get picked to star on the cover, you then have a crumby season. It’s nonsense of course, like the so called Aaron Ramsey curse, but kinda funny all the same.
My guess is that with this being the NFL’S 100th season, Madden puts a collection of young guns and stars on the cover:
Kamara, Juju, Donald, Mahomes, Gurley, Saquon, etc.
Obviously fans online are debating who they would like to see on the cover.
However, our favourte theory, from the Operation Esports Forum, suggested that the cover might look to do something different to celebrate the NFL’s 100th season.
“My guess is that with this being the NFL’S 100th season, Madden puts a collection of young guns and stars on the cover:

It’s a great shout and something we’d love to see to commemorate the event. Like we said at the start though, there’s not long to go before we find out more.
2019 NFL Draft TV channel – How to watch
The 2019 NFL Draft starts at 1am in the UK this Friday.
Sky Sports Action and Sky Sports Main Event will be showing the draft for anyone in the UK who wants to watch.
There will of course be coverage building up to the coverage from 12.30am.
It’s unlikely, however, that anyone tuning in will be able to see the EA Sports Madden 20 cover reveal.
So instead, keep it locked to Daily Star for updates.
