EA SPORTS MADDEN NFL FOOTBALL Tournaments Broadcast Live

September 17, 2004 -- San Jose, CA --—#1 rated Chicago sports radio station, 670-THE SCORE, will broadcast EA SPORTS™ MADDEN NFL™ FOOTBALL tournaments live this fall. Starting with a kick-off, 32-man tournament on September 19th at the world famous Cubby Bear Café’/entertainment hot-spot, EA SPORTS™ MADDEN NFL™ FOOTBALL tournaments will be covered in tandem with post Bear’s shows during a series of live SCORE remotes.

According to SCORE officials, the Bear’s post game show is the highest rated show on the dial. Add to that the appeal of being broadcast from a premier location—right across from Wrigley Field—and you have the makings of an exciting site for debuting Madden video game tournament play. The SCORE shows will be hosted by Bear’s experts and former players such as Mike Ditka, Gale Sayers, Ed O’Bradovich, Doug Buffone and Gary Fencik.

A local Chicago distributor will supply cabinets for the three-hour tournaments. GLOBAL VR® representatives and organizers, Graig Kinzler and Mario Theodule will be available, on-site, at each of the four Chicago tournaments. In addition to the availability of free give-aways, tournament winners from each event will be able to advance to finals in December where they will compete for tickets to the Super Bowl.
