qualifiers for the Fortnite World Cup kick off on April 13

The finals for the £30m tournament will be held from July 26-28 in the 23,000 capacity Arthur Ashe stadium in New York  — the same stadium where the biggest matches of the US Open tennis tournament are played

Everyone who goes will get a free battle pass for season 10 and a bunch of V-bucks to spend on cosmetics in-game.

While ranking Fortnite v bucks generator players’ chances is notoriously difficult due to the amount of luck needed to win any one game, the biggest tournaments have enough matches to see the best players come out on top.

Current favourite is Timothy “Bizzle” Miller of Ghost Gaming.

He’s already earned nearly £80,000 in prize money this year alone, taking him to the top of the Fortnite lifetime competitive earnings chart, according to esportsearnings.com.

Bizzle also sits at the top of some ranking charts that attempt to rate player’s success mathematically.

In an attempt to keep tickets out of the hands of scalpers a special FortniteTicketmaster Verified Fan website has been set up.

Register there and you’ll be the first to know exactly when tickets go on sale.

It follows another huge Fortnite tournament earlier in the year held alongside the Australian Open.

If you’d rather be playing than watching, though, qualifiers for the Fortnite World Cup kick off on April 13, with ten tournaments planned every week until June 22.

They will all be online only and open to everyone, and will have £7.5m in prize money up for grabs for top performers.

If you want a spot in any of the online opens you’ll need to compete in the new Arena Mode during the week preceding the Open you’re aiming for.

Rank up and reach the Champion League, and you’ll also secure a spot in the Online Open for that week.

The very top performers from each event will then face off in the World Cup Finals, a three-day-event being held in New York this summer.

If you make it through to NY, you’ll be competing for a slice of the £23m ($30m) prize pool.

The tournaments will alternate between free-for-all events and teams of two.

Qualifiers will have three hours each Saturday to complete  up to ten matches — and the best 3,000 players will then have to do it all again on the Sunday, this time with $1m on the line, as well as around 20 places in the World Cup finals for solos and 10 for duos.

For solo players there will be 16 places each week going to players from North American and European servers, with between 5 and 7 going to players from servers in Asia, Oceania and Brazil.

For duos there are 8 spots for North American and Europeans players each week, and a total of 3 spots each for Asia, Brazil and Oceania across the whole qualifying period.
