Madden 21 Ultimate Team recently released Team Diamonds 2 and MUT Sugar Rush, but now it looks like Golden Ticket is finally returning. This fan-favorite MUT 21 promo sees a few select players get the exciting opportunity. Like previous years, a few select MUT 21 players will get a shot at designing a custom card available in MUT 21 packs moving forward!
Golden Ticket is available in Madden 21 on Wednesday, April 7, from 7-9 pm ET and Friday, April 9, from 9-11 pm ET. Unlike previous years, every Madden 21 platform will have a shot at a Golden Ticket.
While previous years required MUT 21 victories, this time, you only need to log in to Madden 21 Ultimate Team, at which time players will receive three Golden Opportunities. Golden Opportunities are packs that contain either a coin quicksell or the coveted Golden Ticket collectible.
The MUT 21 Golden Ticket rules are as follows:
Golden Ticket players must be built off a base player item that has already been released in Madden Ultimate Team this year.
Golden Ticket players cannot be players that have retired from the NFL during the 2020 season (In other words, Legends are good; however, players who retired this year are not).
Golden Ticket players cannot use Icons from the Superstar KO mode.
Golden Ticket players will get a physical chemistry slot.
Golden Ticket players will get a team chemistry slot. Team chemistry will operate the same way it does for the Veterans program in that the team chemistry available will only be those that the player played for in the NFL in a regular-season game.
Golden Ticket players will get a secondary position chemistry slot (if it applies to them).
Golden Ticket players will be stand-alone player items and will not be eligible to go into Power-Ups.
Winners get to choose which Tier 3 Buckets they want available on their Golden Ticket player. The only restriction is it must be from an archetype from that position. (E.g. The winner could choose for Michael Vick to have a Field General, Strong Arm, Improviser and Scrambler QB ability bucket).
Golden Ticket Players will receive a 5th ability slot.
Golden Ticket Players still need to hit the thresholds for abilities. (E.g. The winner could choose Tom Brady, but it will be difficult for Brady to achieve the speed requirement for Escape Artist).
The MUT Team will handle physical ratings, but winners will choose up to 3 skill ratings they want to see boosted.
Golden Ticket Players will not be a Limited Time (LTD) item and will be in packs for the remainder of the year with an increased opportunity to pull them from packs the first 48 hours after their initial release in-game.
Winners get to choose card art from any program released except card art from the Legend LTD and Ultimate Legend Career Edition programs.
