Celebrity Flag Football Game Heads to Chicago

Skills challenge and flag football game to help launch EA Sports Madden NFL 13



    It's not quite NFL quality competition, but plenty of familiar faces will be in Chicago this week for the Madden Pigskin Pro-Am.

    The flag football game and skills challenge will be played June 22 at Grant Park's Lower Hutchinson Field. Former pro players such as Brett Favre, Barry Sanders, Herschel Walker, Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders will be playing and celebs such as singers Ne-Yo and Nick Jonas will also participate.

    Current Bears players Lance Briggs and Matt Forte will also be on hand, but don't worry -- they're coaching, not playing.

    The event is being held to help launch the new EA Sports Madden NFL 13.

    The event will be taped and aired at a later date.

    Tickets are free and available to all age groups. Click here to reserve a ticket to the event.
