The Platform Cash Cup is back for Chapter 2 Season 2 find out everything you need to know ahead of its start including the schedule, format, prize pool and how you can watch your favourite players compete.
If it’s not the most Epic thing ever, to starve us of any competitive Fortnite for nigh on three months, then announce two events on the same day. 

For now, we have the return of the FNCS - more on that here - and a brand new round of Contender Cash Cups & Platform Cash Cups for Chapter 2 Season 2.

If you don’t know, the Contenders and Platform Cups are weekly tournaments held on Wednesdays and Thursdays, respectively.

It gives players the chance to compete against the best in their region for the chance to win cash prizes. The Contender Cash Cup is a cross-platform Duo tournament, while the Platform Cup, is as the name suggests, are platform-specific and is played as Solos. 

In the Platform Cash Cup PC players compete in their own group, Xbox and PlayStation 4 compete against each other in the console grouping, and Mobile and Switch players compete to be the best in portable group.

Players will need to be in the Champion League Division I which means having 6,000+ Hype.

Players will play as Ghost or Shadow agents against other Ghost and Shadow agents meaning there are effectively two tournaments running simultaneously.

The Platform Cash Cup starts on Thursday 19th March and runs for five weeks.
