Today we’re gonna take a look at relocating your team in Madden 25’s Connected Franchise mode. Moving your franchise is a big decision and it’s not an easy task to do. Sometimes things just don’t work out in your current city (no funding, small market, etc), so moving the team is the best option.

Before we begin, I should note that your team needs to be really bad before you can just up and move. Your record has to be bad, and the Fan Happiness level has to be low. So teams like the Green Bay Packers and the New England Patriots that have deep rooted ties to the city and are continuously successful probably won’t have the option to move. Teams like the Jaguars, Browns and Raiders have a better chance to move.


You’ll need to create yourself as an owner, then select “relocate”. Once there, none other than ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter questions your motive for moving, asking “You’ve been a highly successful businessman, and now you own a BFL Franchise, what’s the next step for you and this team?”

You then can pick from three answers (subject to change):

  • “I’ve had a lot of success and now I want to have fun and give back to these fans and provide them with a great experience every Sunday.”   TICKET PRICEPer Win +2%/Per Loss -5%
  • “Part of being good at business is surrounding yourself with smart people, so that will continue to be priority A.  We’ll build a continual winner from the top down.” TEAM SUCCESSPer Win +2%/Per Loss -5%
  • “Business to me is turning a profit, so I want to make this franchise the one everybody thinks of first when they think of the NFL.” TEAM SUCCESSPer Super Bowl Win +2%/Per Playoff Missed -5%

Depending on the answer you choose, you’ll hear back from the league, whether you can move or not. Here are the cities you can move to (subject to change):

City Market Size Fan Personality Fan Interest Description
London, England Huge Fair Weather 45% London is a huge market that would love an NFL Team
Los Angeles, California Huge Fair Weather 95% Los Angeles is the easiest city choice financially. They’ll pay for a large percentage of your stadium
Mexico City, Mexico Huge Hardcore 90% Mexico City is a prime destination. It offers hardcore fans and big time stadium funding.
Toronto, Canada Large Laid Back 20% Toronto is an interesting destination. Good fans and decent stadium funding.
San Antonio, Texas Average Loyal 65% San Antonio is a fairly large market with loyal fans. You’ll have to compete with basketball though.
Orlando, Florida Decent FrontRunner 20% Orlando is home to boy bands, theme parks and strip malls. Where do I sign?
Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Small Laid Back 15% OKC doesn’t offer much stadium funding but their fans are pretty laid back!
Salt Lake City, Utah Small Fair Weather 45% Salt Lake City can’t offer much stadium funding but their fans are pretty loyal.
Brooklyn, New York Huge Hardcore 90% Brooklyn is the hottest choice among professional teams. Huge market and hardcore fans make this a perfect destination.
Memphis, Tennessee Small Laid Back 17% You might have the blues if you move here. Very little funding means an expensive stadium bill!
Chicago, Illinois Huge Hardcore 80% Chicago is the perfect city for an NFL team. Fans in the Windy City are as loyal as you get and the market size means more jersey sales.
Sacramento, California Average Laid Back 42% Sacramento supports an NBA team, so you should be fine moving here.
Columbus, Ohio Decent FrontRunner 20% Columbus offers fanatic fans that love their team. The market size is small, but you’ll be adorned here.
Portland, Oregon Decent Fair Weather 45% Portland is not a bad spot to relocate to. Good fans and decent stadium funding can be found here.
Austin, Texas Decent FrontRunner 45% Austin is the perfect place to relocate. Good BBQ, great fans and warm temperatures year round.
Dublin, Ireland Decent Laid Back 60% If you’re interested in going International, Dublin is a great spot. Good food and adoring fans can be found in Dublin!
Houston, Texas Huge Loyal 95% Moving a 2nd team to Houston is a bold move. Choose this city and you can bring the Oilers back.

  1. Lol Toronto laid back

  2. toronto interest 20%? loll ya right

  3. FYI Toronto is a larger market population wise than Chicago and Chicago already has a NFL team

  4. Houston and Chicago already have teams come on now EA be more original than that. Vancouver, anywhere in Alabama, Louisville, and Las Vegas has to be in there.

  5. Toronto should be a Huge market with a 90% plus interest, especially considering that it would be “Canada’s team”

  6. Correct me if I’m wrong, but this is a wonderful idea. I would definitely get this game just for this.

  7. Back in the day (madden 05?) you could choose to relocate whatever team whenever you wanted and there were literally dozens of choices in the US and Canada. I remember every major city being allowed (even Cgy, Edm, and Wpg!) my fave, though, Anchorage Alaska. Could never make money though

    • My boy Juan hated n got rid if Madden 12 cause he couldn’t move teams at all. This is a pretty small selection of cities to move to

  8. I’m glad we can relocate teams again. I think I’m going to use the Rams and relocate them back to LA and use their Jerseys they used in LA.

  9. that’s what i used to be thinking ninth of nov wasn’t from this world

  10. Um,,,,,The “BFL”?????Whats that?

  11. So If I move a team from a city, does the former city then become available to move a different team to? Can I move back? Would there be alternative team names available in the abandoned city?

    Also, if they really wanted to make the option to move a team great, they would create three or four logo and uniform options for each city’s alternative team names so that, as the owner, you feel like you have more control over the brand.

    • No, once a city loses its team you cannot move another team to that location. Unless you move the Texans or Bears, you can relocate a team back to Houston or Chicago.

  12. Thanks, I have just been searching for information approximately this topic for a while and yours is the best I’ve came upon till now. But, what concerning the conclusion? Are you certain in regards to the supply?

  13. Hey very nice web site!! Man .. Beautiful .. Amazing .. I will bookmark your website and take the feeds also…I’m happy to find numerous useful information here in the post, we need develop more techniques in this regard, thanks for sharing. .

  14. Great post. I was checking constantly this blog and I am impressed! Very useful info particularly the last part :) I care for such info much. I was seeking this certain info for a very long time. Thank you and best of luck.

  15. I dont like that you only have 17 options or that cities only have a few options of possible teams and you dont get to design uniforms, choose colors, or design stadiums.

    They shouldn’t have gotten rid of all the possible cities from the old games.

    I used to like to move all the teams in one franchise to new cities and more geographically accurate.

  16. This is my first time pay a quick visit at here and
    i am truly happy to read all at single place.

  17. I rather have sackramento with 100% fan interest, loyal personality, and a huge market size because it’s the capital of the golden state, shaq is minority owner of the sacramento kings. Also sacramento’s nickname is sac or sack. Finally pick the st.louis rams to move their because the city sacramento has the the team name in the middle “ram” and keep them in sactown forever and beyond.
