Although many of us expected the release of Madden 22 with great anticipation there was another day marked in our calendar that we were eager to cross and it was the 2021 NFL Season Kickoff.
For us fans of the gridiron, we dreaded for the first game of the season to start and enjoy the shortest four months of our years because every year it takes a blink for us to be watching the Super Bowl halftime show.
For the fans of the virtual experience, this also means that a new series of items arrive at the Madden Ultimate Team universe with the release of the Ultimate Kickoff program.
The Ultimate Kickoff series will bring a full deck of player items to Madden Ultimate Team

Just like pretty much any other of the programs released in Madden Ultimate Team you can start your collection and also earn some MUT coins by completing the corresponding challenges.
You will be able to get at least six players of the program as rewards plus lots of MUT coins that will allow you to try to buy a pack or snatch an item on the auction house.
Our best advice is to strive for the Champion, WR Calvin Johnson as he will probably be as dominant as he was in the NFL which only makes us wonder what could have been if he would’ve played longer, at least in MUT that won´t be an issue.
Make sure to give a look at our dedicated section as we will bring you everything you need to know about every Madden release, news, MUT tips and more.
