What To Do When Attending The Fortnite World Cup

The $30 million Fortnite World Cup tournament is taking place this week, which includes three days packed full of events and competitive matches for fans to enjoy.

Fortnite World Cup Event Overview

Epic Games is holding a three-day event that will have tons of activities for attendees to participate in. From July 26-28, fans will be able to watch online or attend events on each day of the Fortnite World Cup.

The multi-million dollar event is being held at Arthur Ashe Stadium in Flushing, New York. Participants under 18 years of age will need a parent or guardian who also has a ticket to accompany them into the event per Epic’s event FAQ.

Here are the events and attractions that will be available at the World Cup:

G FUEL Giveaways

While you're at the World Cup, be sure to cop yourself some free G FUEL and swag from our street team!


But that's not all. We're also giving away three PS4 Pro's over the next three days on our Snapchat.

Here's how to enter:

Fortnite Fan Festival

All Fortnite World Cup ticket holders will be allowed to access the Fortnite Fan Festival that is described by Epic Games as “an IRL mini theme park packed with activities and your favorite characters.”

The Fortnite Fan Festival will have in-game themed attractions for people to enjoy like the Glider Zipline and a full mini-golf course inspired by popular in-game destinations! Doors for the Fan Festival open at 9:30 AM ET every day, so there is some time to enjoy all the attractions before each tournament.

Fortnite World Cup Battle Pass

Every person who attends the Fan Festival will be given a special Battle Pass card that will allow them to unlock event-exclusive rewards. Attendees will have to visit four different Fan Festival activities each day in order to go to the Battle Pass Redemption Booth to unlock their daily item. Each day will have a special item, so be sure to complete your pass for each day.

Fortnite World Cup Creative Finals

Epic is also showing off new Creative Trials in the Fortnite World Cup Creative on Friday, July 26. Eight teams of four will fight in the Creative Finals for a slice of the $3 million prize pool. This event is completely separate from the $30 million Fortnite World Cup Finals.

Fortnite Pro-AM

The third Fortnite Pro-AM will take place at the World Cup on Friday, July 26 at 4 PM ET. 50 pro gamers and 50 celebrities will be battling for a $3 million charity prize pool. Fans will get to see the return of the winners from the first Fortnite Pro-AM at E3 2018, Marshmello and Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, along with G FUEL-sponsored ONE_shot_GURL and actionjaxon!


Check out the full list of Pro-AM duos.

Fortnite World Cup Finals – Solo and Duos

Ten weeks of qualifiers all come down to this weekend. Millions of Fortnite competitors fought for their chance to participate in the $30 million event.

The top 100 solo and top 50 duo players from around the world will come together to see who are officially the best Fortnite players in the world.
