Collegiate Madden returns for Spring 2018; registration is open now through March 4th. Register now to compete for your slice of a $5,000 prize pool!
Madden 2018 is a single player game. CSL will host two online-only circuits in this spring tournament: one for XBox One and one for PS4. There will be a group stage followed by a single elimination playoff bracket; specific information on group size and playoff distribution will be finalized once we know the final number of participants. Participants should register expecting to potentially play through June!
We will be using play-a-friend (Online – Head to Head) using standard NFL club teams with one Best-of-1 match per week throughout the regular season and one round each week in the playoffs; default match time is Saturdays at 12pm PST.
This NEWS POST has a guide to what you can expect on a typical match day, we will also cover the basic overview of a weekly match day below:
As a note, participants can reschedule their matches to another day/time if both sides come to an agreement, however you should expect to leave Saturdays at 12pm PST open by default. Any unreported matches by the end of the regular season will be counted as forfeit losses for both sides and any playoff matches not reported by the end of that weekend will also be forfeited.
The prize pool will be $5,000 with each console’s prize pool being $2,500.
This is a free-to-play tournament. That’s right, there is no registration fee! Registration is open to all North American (US and Canada) colleges and univeresities from now through March 4th. Previous participants who are still full-time status students in good standing can continue to use their user account and team from last year; new participants will need to set up their account and team on the CSL site. Please see our RULES PAGE for eligibility and other rules and restrictions.
Create your CSL account and register your “team” (only 1 player allowed per team); each player will need to create their own “team” under their school as well as selecting either PS4 or XBOX by setting your ID in your CSL profile (it will only allow one console to be set). Some basic registration how-to details can be found in THIS VIDEO.
