EA Sports is giving players the chance to compete in four Madden NFL 17 eSports events over the next year.

There are four EA Major Series events on the horizon, which make up the Madden NFL Championship Series. $1 million dollars is up for grabs across these four tournaments.

Players qualify for these tournaments by playing several online modes: Head to Head, Draft Champions, and MUT Salary Cap. Playing specific modes is required to get into each tournament.

Players can gain entry into the first three events by playing Madden NFL 17 online for Xbox One and PS4, but the final tournament, the Madden Championship, is only open to those who compete in previous series events.
