Epic Games have posted the schedule and additional info on Fortnite World Cup, which takes place in USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center's Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York City. The event starts on 26 July 2019 and lasts three days.

Fortnite's World Cup officially kicked off with solos on 13 April 2019, and it's now getting a proper finale, with a hefty $30 million prize pool waiting at the end.

We're talking about the total prize pool, of course, as the Fortnite World Cup is not the winner-takes-all sort of competition, but more on that in a minute. 

Epic threw in a few incentives for fans who attend all three days of the Fortnite World Cup Finals. "All ticketed fans who attend the three day event will receive V-Bucks and a Season 10 Battle Pass", they said.

Sweeney and Co also prepared swag bags with "exclusive items ONLY available at the Fortnite World Cup Finals", and you should expect all the bells and whistles, unlike the shoddy Norwich event that ended with its organiser going out of business .

Expect Tomatoheads and Brite Bombers to run amok, along with a bunch of attractions. You can check out more details on Epic's website .

As for the competitive part of the Fortnite World Cup Finals, Fortnite Creative part of it, and 8 teams of 4 players will compete on 26 July 2019. On the same day, Fornite Pro-Am will match 50 celebrities with 50 pros for a $3 million charity prize pool.

On a related note, popular streamer and sharpshooter Shroud recently commented that Epic's battle royale is probably the best bet for an up and coming esports player, as there's more than enough money in it.

As reported by PCGamesN, Shroud said during his stream, "It's just free money - even if you lose, you win. Not many games are like that, not many games are 'if you lose, you win', but Fortnite is one of them, because they don't know how to make their game and they just have this pile of cash and they're like 'play'.
