Time:4 p.m ET/1 p.m PT
Date: Friday 2nd August

Here’s how the brackets work.

Competitors will be paired. The pair will then join a squad match but will not be playing as a true squad. The pairs will be battling for higher amounts of eliminations.

Now, the pair with more amounts of elimination after 2 matches will advance. The higher seeded team gets the opportunity to host the first match while the lower-seeded teams will have to host the second match. The great part of this is that it is not allowed for Duos to sabotage the other Duos.

How to See Fortnite Friday Tournament Live Results

Since UMG is the host, you can visit UMGGAMING for live results.

Examples of Sabotage at the Friday Fortnite Brackets.

  • Boogie bombing opponent
  • building in front of the opponent
  • Using boogie bomb on the opponent at any time during game disqualifies you
  • Causing opponents to miss shots and opportunities for advancing their scores in any form.
  • Breaking your opponents built structures or cover by any means.
