In addition to all of the other incredible festivities going on this weekend at the Fortnite World Cup, Epic Games has added a Celebrity Pro-Am.
The Celebrity Pro-Am has been a fun event held in the past following the events at E3. Ninja and Marshmello won in 2018 while Airwaks and RL Grime won this year’s tournament just last month. Those two duos will be competing together again in a best-of-the-best match.
There are 50 celebrities and 50 gamers/influencers who will compete for the charity of their choice. Epic Games announced a $3 million prize pool. The winner will earn $1 million of that pool. A full breakdown of the prize pool can be viewed below.
The Fortnite Pro-Am takes place Friday, July 26th at 4:00 p.m. EDT. This event begins after the Creative Finals, which is the first of four major events taking place during the Fortnite World Cup weekend. The event will take place in New York City at Arthur Ashe Stadium.
UPDATE: The Pro-Am has been delayed.
The Celebrity Pro-AM is now slated to start at 5:20PM ET!

Watch the Fortnite Pro-Am live stream
Fortnite’s official Twitch channel will be streaming the event above at 4 p.m. ET.
But if you don’t want to watch on Twitch, there are a number of other options as well. You can watch on Fortnite’s official YouTube, their Facebook page and you can even watch in-game. In previous Pro-Am events, individual streamers also host the event on their channels, but it won’t be from their perspective.
