About John Bedford

John is Metabomb's Editor in Chief, and is responsible for all of the Hearthstone news, features and guides content on the site.

Our Fortnite World Cup 2019 guide contains an overview of the event, with schedules, results, players and fixtures to be added as soon as the details are made public.

The first details of the Fortnite World Cup 2019 have been released by Epic, with qualifying rounds to commence during autumn of this year. There's a juicy prize pool of $100m available for the first season of play, so you should expect to see the community's very best players to get stuck into the action.

In the first edition of our guide to the event, we've got an overview of all the information that has been confirmed by Epic so far. We're expecting to hear a lot more about the World Cup in the coming months, and we'll be adding every scrap of info to this guide as soon as it's made public.

We'll also make sure that every player, fixture and result is featured in this article as well, so you can track who's playing who and when. When we have the first details on this front, they'll be added in here right away.

Until then, here's everything we know right now about Epic's Fortnite World Cup 2019. If you're looking to get a litte more pro at the game yourself, our Fortnite: Battle Royale guide contains all of our how-to articles and is essential reading!

More Fortnite: Battle Royale guides

  • The Fortnite World Cup will consist of both major and minor events. Expect community events and online events held all over the world.
  • It is open to anyone who wants to compete, regardless of their level or status as a pro or amateur player.
  • To take part in the Fortnite World Cup, you'll need to earn your spot in official qualifier matches that will be held all over the world.
  • The $100m prize fund will be split across many events taking place at all levels of competitive play (although it seems likely that the bigger the event, the bigger the reward)
  • The focus of competitive play will be on Solo and Duo modes. Epic has assured the community, however, that there will be plenty of opportunities to play in Squads as well. When we have more detail on that front we'll update this guide.
  • Qualification for the World Cup will be based on merit only, and Epic will not be allowing companies to buy teams and franchises. Third-party leagues will be prohibited from this kind of buy-in as well.
  • The first round of qualifiers will be held in autumn [fall] of this year. The actual World Cup itself will commence in late 2019.
  • Rules, player code of conduct and platforms and schedules will be revealed by Epic in a future update [Editor's note: We'll make sure these are clearly outlined in this article as well, so everyone taking part knows what's expected of them.]

That's the end of the first edition of our Fortnite World Cup 2019 guide. We expect the rules and conduct documents to be published first, followed by details of the first open qualifiers. Both sets of information will be added in here as soon as we have them.

Please let us know in the comments if you believe we've missed any announcements - that way we can make sure it's up to date for everyone!
