How Much Will Pitt Football Make for EA Sports College Football 25?

Pitt, according to EA Sports College Football 25, is in the second tier of college football.

The mega-popular video game is returning this summer, and while the major hold-up was student-athlete compensation, their respective schools will also receive compensation — in a tier-based system.

The 134 FBS schools will be paid by EA Sports in a four-tiered system, which is based on where a school finished in the AP Poll in each of the last 10 seasons.

Tier 1: $99,875.16

Tier 2: $59,925.09

Tier 3: $39,950.06

Tier 4: $9,987.52

Pitt will make $59,925.09, courtesy of two top-25 finishes over the last 10 seasons. That second-tier status is tied for the second-best, along with Florida State, Stanford, Louisville, Miami and Virginia Tech, in the ACC.

EA Sports released the trailer for the highly anticipated EA Sports College Football 25 video game, and Pitt is one of only a handful of programs to be featured multiple times in the trailer. A full Acrisure Stadium, featuring the marching band spelling out the Pitt script, is shown, and a video of Javon McIntyre throwing down a turnover dunk is, too.

The full trailer for the game, which is scheduled to release on July 19, can be found here.

It’s been just over a decade since the last edition of the game, but the wait is just about over.

EA Sports announced that the long-awaited college football video game will be released on July 19 and confirmed the standard and deluxe covers. The standard edition is available for pre-order $69.99 while the deluxe edition is available for $99.99.

The deluxe edition perks include three-day early access to the game, 4,600 college football points, an alma mater ultimate team pack, a cover athlete ultimate team pack, a “bring glory home” ultimate team pack and a Heisman hopeful ultimate team pack.

The standard edition also includes the alma mater ultimate team pack, cover athlete ultimate team pack and “bring glory home” ultimate team pack.

A Supreme Court ruling in the case of NCAA v. Alston, which directly led to NCAA policy allowing for NIL compensation, was perhaps the biggest catalyst in the return of the games.

Once NIL requirements were satisfied, EA announced that every FBS football player would receive $600 and a copy of the game, which retails at $69.99, for using their name, image and likeness. There were some opt-outs, highlighted by Texas quarterback Arch Manning, but it appears as though every Pitt Panther will be in the game. However, if a player does opt out, a created player will not be able to be named after said player.

EA Sports worked with One Team Partners to deal with NIL rights and CLC, which is the country’s top college trademark licensing company, allowing over 15,000 current student-athletes to make merchandise deals.

The Compass CLC app allowed all student-athletes to opt in or out of their NIL of the upcoming video game.

There will likely be new game modes added to EA Sports College Football 25, but the usual modes of Dynasty, Road Glory and Ultimate Team will be available.

So much for revenue sharing

seems like a ridiculously low number for all schools to receive? The amount of profit on that game is staggering and to use their names, etc. they should get a much better split?
