A MADDEN 23 event is being held in London next week where fans can challenge two NFL icons at their own game.
Taking place in Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium, the event will be held on Thursday, October 6.
It will coincide with the upcoming NFL game taking place at the stadium, between the New York Giants and the Green Bay Packers on October 9.
Four tickets to the game will be given out as part of the event as prizes.
A group of fans will be invited to play Madden 23 with NFL icons Jason Bell and Jack Crawford on a 20ft screen set up in the centre of the pitch.
Jason Bell is a former NFL defensive back who played for the New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys.
He now works as a sports pundit for Sky Sports and the BBC.
Retired last year, Jack Crawford has had a long career in the NFL as a defensive end who has also played for the Cowboys.
In a press release, it was announced: “As digital and physical worlds collide – the brand is giving adult gamers the chance to swap between on-screen touchdowns and off-screen plays.
“All alongside some of the sport’s biggest stars – Jason Bell and Jack Crawford.”
Aside from the virtual gameplay, they will then be able to practice American Football drills with the former players.
The two-hour private event will also include food and drinks provided by NFL’s sponsor, Captain Morgan.
Eleanor Morgan, brand manager for the event said: “This year, as proud sponsors of the NFL.
“We wanted to give fans, especially those who game around it, the opportunity to really step off the sofa and into the world they love.
“Gaming and playing with the pros on the actual field – this is giving a whole new meaning to the idea of IRL gaming.”
Those who want the chance to take part in the event next week can register via the official website.
