John Madden will appear on the cover of Madden NFL 23 the season after his passing.

Great job by EA SPORTS to have John Madden on the cover of Madden NFL 23 for this season.

Madden was one-of-one. That is as simple as anybody could ever put it. He was authentically himself, 100 percent of the time. The hall-of-fame head coach of Oakland Raiders fame became the greatest broadcaster the NFL has ever seen. Not only that, but he found even more success as the integral figure of the popular video game franchise that bares his name, image and likeness.

June 1 is #MaddenDay, as John Madden Football was first launched on this day 34 years ago. Electronic Arts provided an update to the $5 million John Madden Legacy Commitment to Education set up in his name this year, as well as dedicating a renovated field in his honor.

“Coach Madden was a lifelong believer in the importance of education, and we’re privileged to support these amazing organizations that are creating opportunities for the next generation to pursue their dreams in his honor”, said EA SPORTS EVP and GM Cam Weber.

The $5 million will be split evenly between two great causes. The first $2.5 million will go towards funding programming four non-profits for STEAM education over the next five years: College Track, Mission Bit, StreetCode Academy and Girls Who Code. The other $2.5 million will go towards the creation of the EA Madden Scholarship in partnership with the UNCF.

As far as the field is concerned, “John Madden Field” will be dedicated to Coach Madden at Electronic Arts’ headquarters in Redwood City, California. Electronic Arts will welcome four flag football teams from the Bay Area to play on the new field first.

Madden’s impact in the game he loved so much will carry on forever by changing lives everywhere.
