LATEST - Time to gear up for this week

This means... If you want to take part in the next Cash Cup tournament, you're going to need to keep an eye out for the Trios Cash Cup playlist in-game on October 25th at the following times:

  • 10:00 PST
  • 13:00 EST
  • 18:00 BST

As always, you'll need Two-Factor Authentification on your Epic Games account and a rank high enough to be in the "Champions League" in Fortnite's Arena mode to participate. This isn't out of the ordinary for Fortnite tournaments, though - so you may already hit all the criteria.
