With the 2021 FNCS season having just concluded and its champions crowned, Epic Games now has their final list of qualified captains for the FNCS Grand Royale, where players will compete to earn a share of a $5 million prize pool.

For those wondering what's next in terms of the event's format and how to watch all the action unfold, here's a breakdown of how to watch the FNCS Grand Royale Broadcast.

From Nov. 11 to Nov. 14, the Grand Royale Qualifiers will take place.

Those in the Middle East will have their qualifiers from Nov. 11 to Nov. 13, while all other regions will fight for their spots in the Grand Royale Finals from Nov. 12 to Nov. 14.

In each of the regional Grand Royale Qualifiers, all of the trios will start in the same session. The top 33 teams will advance to the Victory Path, while the remaining teams will have three more opportunities to make it to there. Once on the Victory Path, all the trios need to do is win a game and they're qualified for the Grand Royale Finals.

Epic Games says they won't be broadcasting the Grand Royale Qualifiers, so feel free to check out your favorite player or streamer who is covering all the action.

From Nov. 19 to Nov. 21, the Grand Royale Finals will then take place.

Those in the Middle East will have their finals from Nov. 19 to Nov. 20, while all other regions will fight for their share of the $5M prize pool from Nov. 20 to Nov. 21.

Here's the broadcast schedule (English) for both days of the NA Region Grand Royale Finals:

  • 4:20 p.m. ET: Show Begins
  • 4:35 p.m. ET: NAE Live Coverage
  • Approximately 7:50 p.m. ET: NAW Live Coverage

Here's the broadcast schedule (English, French, Spanish and German) for both days of the EU Region Grand Royale Finals:

  • 12:50 p.m. ET: Show Begins
  • 1:05 p.m. ET: EU Live Coverage
  • Approximately 4:30 p.m. ET: Broadcast Ends

The English coverage of the NAE, NAW and EU Region Grand Royale Finals will be broadcasted at twitch.tv/fortnite and youtube.com/fortnite.

Epic also noted that they’ve made some improvements to both the live broadcast and the player experience in-game for Grand Royale and all two-day events moving forward, as scores on broadcast and in-game will reflect the team’s current points, and not just the points they have earned on the current day.
