Top 5 Places to Relocate Your Franchise in Madden NFL 25
In Madden NFL 25′s Connected Franchise Mode you can move your team from their current city to one of 17 different cities as an owner. While each city has their own attributes like how big the market size is, fan personality, fan interest, and unique team names, it can be a daunting task to relocate your franchise. Because it might be another 10 years before you can relocate again, it’s important to choose the right city the first time, and that’s where I am here to help.
Here are my Top 5 Places to Relocate Your Franchise:
1. Brooklyn, New York – Brooklyn is the #1 place to relocate your franchise in my eyes. Not only is the market size huge, but the fan interest is sky high for getting a team in the Bronx, meaning people will flock to your new stadium. I know this would make it the 3rd team in New York, but having a stadium in Brooklyn is not going to be an issue. Plus you’ll be able to bring the Brooklyn Dodgers back into the league. Brooklyn is the hottest choice among professional teams. Huge market and hardcore fans make this a perfect destination.
Team Name Choices: Yanks, Beats, Dodgers
2. Los Angeles, California – Los Angeles has always been the ‘Next’ destination for an NFL Franchise owner looking for a new home for their team. The fans there are fair weather fans, but since the Rams and the Raiders left, they are ready to support another team. Los Angeles is the easiest city choice financially. They’ll pay for a large percentage of your stadium, so if you are short on money and need some help, LA may just be the option for you.
Team Name Choices: Dreams, All Stars, Aftershocks
3. Houston, Texas – Some might think bringing a second team to Houston would be a mistake but it may be worth it to select the Oilers name and uniform options. Those Oilers uniforms were nice, plus the fanbase is loyal and want the Oilers back bad. You’ll sell a lot of merchandise in Houston and in time make that your city. No doubt moving a 2nd team to Houston is a bold move but it could pay dividends in the long run.
Team Name Choices: Oilers, Gunners, Voyagers
4. London, England – There’s no doubt that the Commissioner of the NFL wants to have a team overseas, but will you move your team to London? London is a huge market that would love an NFL Team, but the fans are fair weather fans. So what makes London a great destination to move your Franchise? It’s London and you can choose the Monarchs as your team name and logo. There is no clue as if teams will be tired traveling overseas for 1 week but who knows.
Team Name Choices: Bulldogs, Black Knights, Monarchs (NFL Europe)
5. Mexico City – Mexico - The last place you want to go is to a place that has bad names to choose from, so that’s why Mexico City rounds out the bottom of my top 5 places to relocate your franchise. Being able to choose the Diablos or Conquistadors team names and logos are the lure of Mexico City. Not only that but Mexico City is a prime destination it has hardcore fans, and big time stadium funding if you need it. They really want a team in Mexico City, so you won’t have trouble building that big stadium that will be filled up with some hardcore fans, rooting on the Mexico City Conquistadors!
Team Name Choices: Diablos, Conquistadors, Golden Eagles
