Hold onto your gliders! Another explosive, star-studded Celebrity Pro-Am event will take place at the World Cup Finals. The latest Pro-Am just took place in June at the Summer Block Party with Airwaks & RL Grime taking home the victory.

In the same blog post, Epic Games gave the details on the Creative Finals & this new Pro-Am event. Attendees for the celebrity spectacle have not yet been revealed. As avid readers will know, Epic used a ‘wave’ reveal system for June’s affair and will likely continue with something similar.

The Creative Finals & Pro-Am will take place a day before the World Cup Finals on July 26th. Both will be played at the Arthur Ashe Stadium in NYC.

  • Creative Finals/Celebrity Pro-Am – Friday, July 26th
    • 6:30 AM PDT/9:30 AM EDT – Fan Festival Begins
    • 8:00 AM PDT/11:00 AM EDT – Show Begins
