ESTNN breaks down everything you need to know about this weekend’s $250K Console Champions Cup.


Rest assured console Fortnite Battle Royale players, Epic Games has not forgotten about you. While there won’t be a Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) dedicated to non-PC competitors, the Console Champions Cup is the next best thing. Epic kicked off this new major console tournament last season with a $250K USD prize pool and high-level gameplay across four intense rounds. Some PC players invaded, but the elite talents on Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch and Mobile primarily occupied the leaderboards.

The Console Champions Cup returns in Chapter 2 – Season 7 with another $250K USD prize pool and an intense weekend of competition. Today, ESTNN breaks down all of the crucial details of this tournament, including the format, schedule, regional prize distributions and more!

Format & Schedule

Like last season, trios remain the central format in Fortnite’s Console Champions Cup. Teams of three will need to make it through three rounds of qualifiers before reaching round four, where prize money comes into effect. Epic has defined a predetermined qualification threshold, which varies per region. The general goal is for teams to earn points based on placement and eliminations to put themselves atop each round’s leaderboard. Remember, all players in a given trio must reach Champion League in Arena Mode to be eligible.

Here is a complete round-by-round breakdown of the Console Champion Cups’s format:
