EA College Football 25 will include every Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) team, with thousands of licensed college athletes on the roster.

EA College Football 25 will be released on July 19, though players who purchase the Deluxe Edition or the MVP Bundle with Madden 25 will receive three days of early access from July 16.

No exact release time has been confirmed for EA College Football 25, though we expect it to follow the same pattern as previous EA Sports releases—meaning it will likely be accessible from midnight local time.

Given it will likely be a staggered release, in theory, players in New Zealand and other parts of the world can jump into the action first—though this won’t be the case if EA College Football 25 gets a global release time.

If you want to know exactly how long you have to wait to dive into EA College Football 25 with the Deluxe Edition, use our countdown below for the early access launch. The countdown is set for midnight CT on July 13.

Alternatively, if you are sticking with the standard version of EA College Football 25, you can use this countdown for the full release. The countdown is set for midnight CT on July 16.
