There are 2 different times you can celebrate in Madden. First, when you are in the open field about to score a touchdown. Second, immediately after you score a touchdown.

Celebrating when you are about to score a touchdown is one of the most satisfying things you can do in Madden. When someone celebrates against you, it can be enough to make you rage quit.

We’ll teach you how to celebrate below:

Step 1: Make sure there are no defenders near you

This is critically important. If you celebrate and get tackled, you will fumble nearly 100% of the time. Make sure you have plenty of space between you and the nearest defender.

Step 2: Showboat by holding down LT + RT + A on the XBOX One or L2 + R2 + X on the PS4

Holding these buttons down in the open field will cause the player with the ball to start showboating.

Step 3: Dive Into The Endzone By Pressing LT + X on the XBOX One or L2 + Square on the PS4

Pressing these buttons will trigger a cool dive into the endzone.

Step 4: Score a touchdown

Once you have scored a touchdown, you can unlock more celebrations.

Step 5: Use the right stick to trigger more celebrations

  • Hold the right stick up to trigger a team celebration.
  • Hold the right stick down to unlock a player specific celebration
  • Hold the right stick to the left to have the player dance
  • Hold the right stick to the right to spike the ball
  • Push the right stick in to trigger a swag celebration

Now that you know how to showboat and celebrate in Madden, hop into a game and try it out for yourself!
