ESTNN breaks down the upcoming string of Fortnite tournaments presented by DreamHack.


DreamHack returns this month with another round of Cash Cup Extra tournaments for competitive Fortnite players. The series debuted in Season 6 to a positive response across the community. Separate from the DreamHack Opens competition, the Cash Cup Extra took results from each weekly Trio Cash Cup and offered the top 132 teams a chance to win more cash. It was a huge hit, and several of the best NA East and European squads earned victories.

Ten days stand between these players and an impressive weekly prize pool. Today, we’ll look at the entire Cash Cup Extra, and all of the details you should know before the best European and NA East trios square off.

Cash Cup Extra Format

The Cash Cup Extra opens its doors to the top-performing trios in the weekly Trio Cash Cup tournaments. To qualify, teams in the NA East and European server regions must finish inside the top-132. Teams managing to conquer that task will automatically unlock the Cash Cup Extra competition later in the week.

Here’s a complete look at the tournament format that participants should know:

  • Top 132 trios from each weekly Trio Cash Cup qualify for the Cash Cup Extra
  • Three-hour session
  • A maximum of ten possible matches
