The NFL is set to host the fourth annual Madden NFL x HBCU Tournament taking place at the NFL Pro Bowl Games in Orlando on February 4, 2024.
The event is designed for students attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) who are passionate about gaming and football.
The program is open to all undergraduate and graduate students attending an HBCU.
Students will have three paths to qualify for the HBCU Championship during the NFL Pro Bowl Games: open qualifiers, women’s qualifiers, and HBCU video applications.
The top eight players selected from the qualifiers and video applications will be able to explore the business side of sports through practical learning and job shadowing NFL executives. They will tour Camping World Stadium, interact with NFL players, and receive a media pass for field access to the game. There will also be chances to win cash and prizes throughout the tournament.
The qualifiers will be held from October through December, and students can compete in Madden NFL 24 on PC, Xbox Series X or S, or PlayStation 5 systems. The top three players from both the open and women’s qualifiers will advance to the HBCU Championship.
HBCU students can also participate by submitting a video application explaining why they should attend the HBCU Championship. Submissions are now open until December 1, with the top two winners selected based on NFL criteria.
