Fortnite Blanka & Sakura Cup (Android): Start Time, Rewards, Rules, & Latest News

Fortnite's next online competition, the Blanka & Sakura Cup, will arrive in two versions. The first version will bring the competition exclusively to mobile on Android, and it will soon kick things off!

Here's how to sign up for the Blanka & Sakura Cup on Android, when it begins, and all the unique Street Fighter-themed rewards at stake.

Start Time

The Blanka & Sakura Cup for Android arrives on Wednesday, April 27, but the Fortnite event has no single official start time. Instead, the Blanka & Sakura Cup offers a three-hour window for qualifying matches that varies based on your region.

To participate in the event, players must be at level 50 or above and have 2FA activated and verified.

The event is also Zero Build, and available for solos only.

Much like other Fortnite Cups, this event will allow players up to 10 matches in a three-hour period, and placements during these matches will offer different amounts of points.

After 10 matches or the end of the time window, points will be totaled, and results will be tallied by region.
