Fortnite 2022 Tournament Schedule: Cash Cups, FNCS & More!

ESTNN provides the complete Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 competitive schedule as it stands.

Fortnite’s first competitive season of 2021 is nearly upon us. Players worldwide have been deeply entrenched in what Chapter 3 Season 1  has to offer; a new map, weapons and mechanics. Epic Games recently revealed that Duos would be the tournament standard moving forward after an entire year of Trios.

With all that being said, official tournaments are right around the corner. Competitive players can expect eight weekly competitions for cash prizes throughout Chapter 3 Season 1, on top of potential DreamHack events and the seasonal Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS).

Epic recently announced some changes to several regularly scheduled tournaments, so check that out to learn more. Now, let’s look at a comprehensive breakdown of competitive Fortnite tournaments that lie ahead through March.
