If you are looking for some (virtual) football action, then look no further than ESPN for the Madden 20 NFL Celebrity Tournament.
Madden NFL 20 Celebrity Tournament Kicks Off
The single-elimination tournament, featuring celebrities from sports and entertainment, starts off with a bracket reveal show on April 19th at noon ET on ESPN2. Once the brackets are set, games will then air each day from April 20th to April 25th beginning at noon ET. You can also catch them on the ESPN app and other ESPN digital and social platforms like ESPN Esports, Twitch, and YouTube.
The championship match-up will be played Sunday, April 26th, at noon ET on ESPN 2. The winner of the tournament will receive a $25,000 donation to Feeding America in their name.
The list of participants is a who’s who of football superstars, UFC fighters, music industry names, and ESPN Personalities. Confirmed participants include: NFL Players Cam Jordan (New Orleans Saints DE), DeAndre Hopkins (Arizona Cardinals WR), Devonta Freeman (Free Agent), Drew Lock (Denver Broncos QB), Marquise Brown (Baltimore Ravens WR), Melvin Gordon (Denver Broncos RB), Stefon Diggs (Buffalo Bills WR), Travis Kelce (Super Bowl Champions Kansas City Chiefs TE), Chris Weidman (Former UFC Middleweight Champion), Daniel Cormier (Former UFC Heavyweight/Light Heavyweight Champion), Snoop Dogg, Lil Yachty, YG, and ESPN Personalities Katie Nolan, Omar Raja and Pat McAfee. The individuals above are listed as participants and not commentators, which will make Nolan the first female to compete in the recent series of celebrity NFL Madden tourneys.
However, recent multi-tourney winner Derwin James (DB of the Los Angeles Chargers) is not included in the lineup, who should honestly be in every tourney ran with Madden 20, if possible due, to his impressive and dominate skills.
