Fandom's Muthead to Host Friday Night Football (FNF) Summer Series Championship at Madden NFL 20 Launch Event August 9th


SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Muthead, a Fandom gaming community for Madden NFL, announced today that it will be hosting its annual Friday Night Football (FNF) Summer Series Championship to celebrate the launch of Madden NFL 20 on August 9th at 03:00 PM CT. The event, which is held this year at the new GameStop Performance Center in Frisco, Texas, will be live streamed on MutheadTV's Twitch, YouTube, Mixer, and Facebook channels. Six of the top Madden players in the world will compete for the winning title and $10,000 in prize money.

Over the last five weeks, Muthead has hosted FNF Summer Series events in which players competed for an invitation to the FNF Championship during the first week of Madden NFL 20's official release. While the official launch date of Madden NFL 20 was August 2nd, Madden game developer Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA), gave early access to the game to Muthead for the 32 players participating in Muthead's tournament on July 26th.

"Our phenomenal sixth FNF Summer Series has helped cement our role as the ultimate source for all things Madden NFL; We are very happy with the results and congratulate the six stellar finalists competing in this week's championship game," said Cody Sutherland (Rocketz) of Muthead. "EA's support enabled us to execute a smooth and thrilling summer series that we look forward to repeating again in the future."

Following the summer series conclusion, Muthead, in close cooperation with EA, will host four online qualifiers for the Madden NFL 20 Classic, occurring days before the NFL season kickoff on August 30-September 1. More than 100 competitors will play over the course of two days for each qualifier, the dates being August 17th (XBOX), August 18th (PS4), August 24th (XBOX), and August 25th (PS4). Winners and runner-ups from each qualifier will receive top eight seed placement in the Madden Classic.
