Epic continues to impress with the collaborations, today announcing a new Euro 2020-inspired link up.

Having been pushed back a year due to Covid-19, the second biggest event on the international football calendar finally kicks off this Friday. Celebrate the arrival of Euro 2020 inside Fortnite with some fresh additions to the Icon Series and the first big tournament of Season 7.

UEFA Euro 2020 Cup

Starting June 16, the Fortnite UEFA Euro Cup will give players their first chance to prove themselves in the new Solo meta. As well as a total $50,000 prize pool, a pair of football-themed cosmetics are up for grabs to those who hit a certain point threshold.

Unlike most of these one-off competitions, the Euro Cup will take place across two days, with one round on each. Only the top performers in each region for Round 1 will progress to Round 2, which is where the cash prizes will be won.

Those in Europe, NA East, NA West and Brazil will need to place in the top 1,000 to qualify for day 2, while in Middle East, Asia and Oceania just the top 500 will make it.
