Cred in Madden NFL 23, explained

Cred is an in-game currency in Madden NFL 23, and is mainly used in The Yard. The Yard is a mode where players can partake in seven-on-seven action, with each team being limited to the number of drives.

In The Yard, Madden 23 players are prompted to create avatars that can be used in offline, online head-to-head, and online co-op play. Users can also customize their avatar by buying clothing items like jerseys and helmets that have NFL team logos. In most cases, you’ll need Cred to get these items.
