  • Final: 31st March 2019 – Stamford Bridge, London, England

There will also be dance contests (shudders at the thought of parents trying to do the flossing dance), VIP meet and greets and opportunities to win esports prizes.

Maeve Finnegan from EStars said:”We are delighted to bring the most popular game in the world to life across the UK and Ireland. EStars featuring Fortnite is for fans of Fortnite to play together. It promises to be an engrossing extravaganza that will be spectacular for the gamers.”

EStars aims to give players at all levels the chance to compete in tournaments and focus on community gaming events.

EStars held a League of Legends tournament earlier this year, with rosters representing Irish football teams.

General tickets to the Fortnite tournament are on sale on www.estars.pro priced at £25 or €30.
