Fortnite World Cup
5. Qualifications Begin in April
4. Players as Young as 13 Can Compete
Players between ages 13-17 will be allowed to compete with their parent's permission. All players must be in good standing with Epic and currently have no penalties on their account. Allowing these young people to compete will be a great way to grow interest in esports for youths.
3. There Will Be Both Solos and Duos
In the end, the Top 100 solo players and Top 50 duos worldwide will be invited to compete at the Finals in New York City from July 26-28.
2. Other Ways to Play
At the event itself, there will be special challenges with different modes or formats to appeal to non-competitive players. The games will of course be streamed live and there may be further incentives to watch the game streams.
1. The Total Prize Pool is $100 Million
Finally, the Finals itself will have a prize pool of 30 million dollars. Each participant will receive at least 50 thousand dollars and the champion will walk away with 3 million.
