Fortnite SypherPK Cup: Schedule, format, prizes, rules, more

SypherPK made his name with his Fortnite tutorial videos now he has a tournament featuring his name.

This Trios tournament will be played in just North America East across two days with a top prize of $2000. I mean okay you can't retire on it but considering most competing aren't able to legally work yet (except ol' SypherPK himself) it's still a pretty hefty bag.

The big draw for this event for viewers will be SypherPK likely joining up with NICKMERCS and presumably G2's Coop as they did in last weeks FNCS to battle it out for the top spot. It is always great to see those two Fortnite OGs join up and this tournament won't be any different.


The two-day event will take between 17-18th of February and run for approx three (3) hours.

It kicks each day at 18 pm EST (11 pm GMT)


Round 1's session (17th Feb) will last approximately three (3) hours. Teams may participate in a maximum of ten (10) matches during each session.

The 300 highest performing teams will head through to Round 2.
