Madden 24 Headliners Program Details

The Headliners Program is all about helping you get started as you begin to build your squad in Ultimate Team. Coming with a handful of different ways to secure players and rewards, the Headliners Program has its very own Field Pass that contains 19 levels. Along the Field Pass, fans can find different kinds of Headliners Player Packs, Front Page Tokens used to upgrade a certain type of Headliners player, Season 1 XP, and increments of 5,000 MUT Coin.

In order to secure these player packs and essentially progress your way through the Field Pass, fans have to accumulate Headliners Program XP by completing objectives and challenges. Should you be after the new players, including the Champions, fans need to complete Headliners player or pack sets, which require several lower overall rated players from the program.

However, if you don’t want to go through the hassle of completing a set, all the new players are also located in the Auction House or in packs you can purchase from the store.

Madden 24 Headliners Program Players

On Monday August 14, Madden 24 held a live stream on Good Morning Madden revealing several new players from its new Headliners Program.

Launching with Madden 24’s early access period on August 15, the first release of the Headliners Program came with a stacked collection of new player items. And not even two weeks later, Madden 24 has returned with yet another decorated Headliners release that went live today.

Without further ado, here’s a look at all the new Headliners Program players from releases one and two.

This great player reward is the bright young Kansas City CB Jaylen Watson, and went live in Ultimate Team yesterday.

The first release of Headliners players consists of a total of 44 new players. But for the sake of community interest, we will be covering the Top 26 players that most are after in Ultimate Team.

Front Page Players (79 – 85 OVR)

One of the coolest parts about the Headliners Program is being able to upgrade certain players to higher overall ratings. This largely consists of the Front Page players, who all start with 79 OVRs but can be upgraded to 85 OVRs by applying Front Page Tokens you can unlock from the Headliners Field Pass.

Keep in mind though that you can only unlock four of those tokens from the Field Pass, so be sure to choose wisely which Front Page player you want to max out. The Headliners Front Page Tokens are available at Levels 2, 6, 10, and 14.

Javonte Williams (HB)Broncos
Wan’Dale Robinson (WR)Giants
Isaiah Likely (TE)Ravens

Challenge Player (78-84 OVR)

The Headliners Program comes with a set of challenges (48 in total) that fans can complete for Headliners XP and an exclusive player reward that they can upgrade.

This player reward is none other than new Baltimore Ravens WR Odell Beckham Jr., who starts as a 78 OVR once unlocked but can be evolved into an 84 OVR upon applying his special OBJ Headliners Upgrade Tokens, which can be found on the challenges reward path. As soon as you open the milestones ladder, you will see that OBJs tokens are located at Tiers 4 and 8.
