By: on August 23, 2012

Electronic Arts outlined today the 2012 – 2013 benefits to the EA SPORTS Season Ticket program. The second year of the program is bigger and better with even more value accessible to EA SPORTS consumers with the addition of more than $100 of paid DLC across the five participating franchises – Madden NFL, NHL, FIFA Soccer, Tiger Woods PGA TOUR  and NCAA Football. In addition to the $100 of paid downloadable content included, the program will continue to offer three day early access to all participating titles and 20 percent off any additional paid downloadable content purchased for the participating titles.

EA SPORTS Season Ticket is available on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico and North America. Subscribers in North America will see the first benefit of the program tomorrow (August 24, 2012), as Madden NFL 13 is made available to them three days before the game’s retail release. Three day early access to Madden NFL 13 for subscribers outside of North America will be available on August 27, 2012.

“We’re excited to be expanding EA SPORTS Season Ticket to add more value for our fans,” says Dan Garzia, Senior Director, Digital marketing, EA SPORTS. “With more downloadable content and three-day early access, this is a great new offer for anyone who regularly plays even one EA SPORTS game.”
