100 million dollars would sure buy a lot of V-Bucks.

That’s what’s up for grabs — the cash, not the V-Bucks — during and beyond 2019 in the Fortnite World Cup competitive season. It kicks off with 10 weekly Online Open qualifiers that run from April 13 to June 16, each with $1,000,000 in the offing. Next up is the Fortnite World Cup Finals in New York City July 26-28, where a cool $30 million will be on the line, including a minimum $50,000 for each participant and $3 million for the winner.

The first set of tournaments is open to any player over the age of 13 in good standing with Fortnite: Battle Royale, while the Finals will only extend invitations to the top 100 solo players and the top 50 duos teams.

Even after the big event, Epic will continue running $1 million weekly tournaments throughout the year, featuring “a wider variety of modes and formats to open up the competitive playing field.” Tournament tools will also be offered to “select partners” to help them run their own events in various regions throughout the world until the entire $100 million has been awarded.
