The event will be broadcast live on Friday, September 11, at 8pm ET/5pm PT on Fandom’s Muthead Twitch channel https://www.twitch.tv/mutheadtv
“Now more than ever, esports is bringing people together, and that’s something that really resonates with us as a food company. Whether gaming or eating, it’s about sharing an experience,” said Colleen Hall, senior marketing director for the Tyson brand. “For the first time ever, Muthead’s Madden fans can do more than just watch the Pro-Am Tournament, they can play alongside fellow fans and enjoy the bold flavors and varieties of Tyson Any’tizers snacks together.”
This unique Madden tournament will be played in the Superstar KO mode where for the first time ever in the Muthead community, six lucky fans will be given the opportunity to compete with NFL athletes and Madden pros for a $10,000 prize pool.

About Tyson® Chicken
In the 1930s, John W. Tyson moved his family to Arkansas and began delivering farm-raised chickens from his truck. From those humble beginnings, the Tyson brand grew, finding new ways to help feed the nation while staying true to its original belief that every family deserves to have high quality farm-raised chicken on their table. The brand’s portfolio of products includes Tyson Fresh and Frozen Chicken, Tyson Naturals® Chicken, Grilled & Ready® Chicken, Any’tizers® Snacks, Tyson Chicken Nuggets and Crispy Strips. As the brand has grown, our beliefs have remained the same: Be good. Be humble. And always keep it real. For more information, visit www.tyson.com.
