To coincide with the UEFA 2020 football tournament, video game Fortnite will kick off the Fortnite UEFA 2020 Cup on 16 and 17 June.

Fortnite’s Battle Royale and Creative Mode gameplay are available globally, with more than 350m player accounts.

Over the course of two days, eligible Fortnite players around the world will be able to compete across two rounds, where they will have the opportunity to earn valuable points along the way. The top-performing players will be able to earn prize money as well as in-game rewards.

“Football is consistently one of the top sports that our players tell us they want to see and experience in Fortnite,” said Head of Global Partnerships at Epic Games, Nate Nanzer. “This year has already seen an incredible calendar of football events both in the game and around the world and partnering with UEFA for the Fortnite UEFA EURO 2020 Cup is one more exciting way to celebrate football with millions of Fortnite players.”
