What is the Fortnite World Cup?
The Fortnite World Cup is an event that began in April and culminates with the World Cup Finals in New York City on July 26-28. Qualifiers for the Fortnite World Cup will be eligible for a seat at the finals where they will compete to be the Fortnite Kings (not to be confused with us, of course).
How do you qualify for the Fortnite World Cup?
Matches are played online. There are solo and duo qualifications.
What’s up for grabs?
A big chunk of change. The open qualifiers prize pool is approximately 10 million dollars (no, that is not a typo). 1 million dollars is being given away each week in the open qualifiers. For those lucky enough to make it to the world cup finals being hosted in New York, a prize pool of 30 million dollars is up for grabs! There are going to be 50 duo teams and 100 solo players competing for the prize pool. Every player who makes it to the finals is guaranteed a minimum of 50,000 dollars and the winners taking home the championship will be earning a cool 3 million dollars. Epic has clearly pulled out all the stops for this tournament!
How can I watch the Fortnite World Cup?
Unfortunately world cup ticket sales for the finals are sold out. If you live in NYC or wanted to make your way out there to watch you will need to find a reseller for tickets. For the preliminaries many of the competitors are streaming their journey on Twitch, so if you’d like to follow a long with the process you can stream them directly. It is no doubt that the finals culminating in NYC is going to be a massive event, and we can’t wait to see the turnout and see who comes out on top! Best of luck to everyone.
