2019 is going to see a UK-wide Fortnite eSports tournament that is open to anyone who can bag a ticket.
With a £25,000 top prize for the winner of the Stamford Bridge final and 600 spot prizes across the ten qualifiers being held across the British Isles, it’s a chance for any Fortnite fan to make some real cash.
The first round is being held on January 4, 5 and 6 next year at Celtic Park in Glasgow.
That’s followed by rounds at the calmer surrounds of Arsenal’s Emirate’s stadium, Brighton’s Amex Stadium, Swansea’s Liberty Stadium, Dublin’s Croke Park, Wolves’ Molineux ground, St James’ Park in Newcastle, The National Stadium in Belfast, Man City’s Etihad, and Stamford Bridge.
The top finishers from those events will all get a place to compete in the final at Chelsea FC’s Stamford Bridge home on March 31, 2019.
Whoever claims the ultimate Victory Royale at the Bridge will walk away with a cool £25,000 in cash.
There will also be roughly £25,000 worth of spot prizes across the qualifiers, as well as dance contests and the chance to bag some esports swag.
Unlike many cash Fortnite events these events, organised by grassroots esports promoters EStars, will be played entirely on console, with both PlayStation 4s and Xbox Ones available.
Players won’t be allowed to bring their own special controllers or other peripherals, so there should be a level playing field for everyone.
Ticket to participate cost £25 / €30, and go on sale at 10 am Wednesday, November 21.
