Create a team for some reason is a lost art in many video games. While some games are starting to bring the feature back in a way, such as in the MLB games, Madden 21 and the NFL still is reluctant to go dive into the idea of letting players create a team. Here are your options for how to create a team in Madden 21.
How to Create a Team in Madden 21
So let’s get right to it. There’s no traditional Create a Team mode or option in Madden 21. Unlike Create a Player, which is a thing you can still do as of Madden 21.
That said, while this is a bummer, there are a few other options you can give a try if you want something that at least somewhat replicates a create a team experience.
Relocate Your Franchise Team
By far the closest thing to having a create a team mode in Madden 21 is relocating your team in Franchise mode while playing as an Owner.
If you want to do this, we do have a step by step guide for how to do that, but the quick version is this: Start as an Owner, pick a team that has a bad stadium situation, and then start the relocation process and move to any of the available cities.
The various cities open to you have a few pre-chosen team names you can pick from and you’ll be able to customize your uniforms and stadium based on a few options available to you as well.
Create an Ultimate Team Instead
Unsurprisingly Madden 21 brings back its favorite money printing game mode: Madden Ultimate Team.
It’s definitely not the same as create a team, but you do have the opportunity to put together a team of your favorite player cards. Once you have a team that you like, you can use it to complete challenges or play against other players online.
Request it From EA Tiburon/EA Sports
Hey if you really want to see create a team return in future Madden games (since at this point Madden 21 isn’t likely to happen), reach out to EA Tiburon, EA Sports, and even the NFL, and politely ask them on Twitter to add the feature back in.
If enough people ask them nicely, they may consider it a feature worth adding back in. No Pitchforks please though. We’ve seen the public positively change games before in the past, so it can happen!
Go Play an Older Game
If none of this is going to cut it and you’re desperate to play a true create a team mode in Madden at all costs, go find Madden 12 and play that instead. It’s probably worth about 50 cents or less at your local game store or online. It’s the last version of the series to have a proper create a team.
You can relive some memories from that wonderful year in football as well. What happened that year you ask? Well the Giants stunned the Tom Brady led Patriots and anyone outside of the New England area would likely agree those were some great times.
That does it for how to create a team in Madden 21. Sorry we couldn’t deliver the news you were likely hoping for, but at least you have your answer a few alternatives.
