How to Play Neymar Jr Cup in Fortnite

Thankfully, the Neymar Jr Cup isn't one you have to register for, unlike many other themed tournaments. It is open to everyone.

If you head to the battle royale lobby menu and tab over to the Compete tab, you'll be able to jump into the Cup. This is a solo cup, so there's no need to group up with friends before getting involved.

It's worth noting that "players must have Two-Factor Authentication enabled on their Epic account and be at account level 30 or above," before jumping in.


Tournament Start Time

You'll be able to jump into the Fortnite Neymar Jr Cup at 11pm BST/8pm ET on April 28 and it will run for three hours.

You'll be able to play a maximum of ten matches in the time period, so get grinding.

All Rewards

As the tournament's official page states, the best player in each region will win a "custom-designed soccer boot, inspired by Neymar Jr’s primal form (Exhibition)."

That doesn't mean the winner is the only person to get something out of the Neymar Jr Cup. You can also win the new Spinner Takes All Emoticon by taking part in the event.
