The Fortnite Season 5 Cash Cups will take place "every other week throughout the season", with the first one starting on 11th January 2021. 

Check in-game for your region-specific start times. For example, the Middle-East cash cup kicks off at 13:00 GMT.

The schedule for the Fortnite Season 5 Cash Cups are:

  • 11th January 2021
  • 25th January 2021
  • 8th February 2021

Alongside the Cash Cups, Hype Cups take place on the same day, giving players who couldn't make the Cash Cup requirements a chance to earn some Hype to get to Champion League.

If you can't join in due to low Hype, you can always join the Hype Cups, which could give you a nice boost to join the next Cash Cup.

Good luck to everyone participating in the Fortnite Season 5 Cash Cups!
