The reveal of Madden 21‘s Ultimate Team is just around the corner.

We’ve already seen a bit of news come out, but with Gridiron Notes and a live stream today what can we expect to be confirmed by EA?

Latest news – Team Diamonds to return?

While the top core elite players were revealed officially, Jake Stein may have let slip that Team Diamonds are returning this year.

What else would we like to see revealed for MUT this year?

Auto substitutions

Most every game mode in the Madden series has introduced the Auto subs feature.

Fans deserve a longer life to the game mode they invest so much in, and more mini-promos/House Rules events wouldn’t go a miss in between the main promos either!
