The second coming of the renewed Friday Fortnite tournaments is arriving June 7th. Thanks to funding from FaZe Clan, the popular event is back again to thrill thousands of viewers.
Back in the beginning of competitive Fortnite, Friday Fortnite was the go to tournament for big time money and entertainment. After Epic’s move to take more direct control of the scene, the events dissipated.
But now it is back! For the second weekend in a row, Friday Fortnite returns! All the biggest names in Fortnite will be competing for prize money alongside other celebrities.
When does Friday Fortnite – June 7 start?
The second week of Friday Fortnite will begin at the same times as the first event. Friday Fortnite’s official start times are 1PM PST/4PM EST/9PM BST. The event expected to last for quite awhile (6 to 9 hours) judging by last weekend’s event.
The event will be run and streamed by UMG again. Of course, you can also catch your favorite players streaming the event on their own channels. This includes Ninja, Myth, Liquid Chap, etc.Watch live video from UMGEvents on www.twitch.tv

Of course, Ninja and Pewdiepie will be playing in this event. These two powerhouses alone will bring tens of thousands of viewers for the event.

This is a live bracket which will be updated throughout the event. It’s a great way to follow along with the results when you can’t watch the stream.
The bracket is interactive and can be scrolled in all four directions on any platform of your choice. The bracket is created and run by UMG using the Challonge bracket creation tool.
What’s the Friday Fortnite Format?
Friday Fortnite will continue to follow the classic Fortnite style of play.
Instead of the point based placement system we are used to from the Fortnite World Cup, Friday Fortnite will be played via public matches. Many viewers have stated they enjoy watching this format much more than the FWC.
In this format, players will enter a Squads lobby with the other Duo. They will then start a public Squads match.
The teams compete against each other for kills. The team with the most kills wins the round. This is done twice and then kills are added up. The team with the most kills over two rounds moves on.

As the duos are in the same Squad, the players cannot harm the gameplay of the other duo. They can steal kills, but the following are examples of what is off limits:
- Breaking other duo’s builds to make them die or fall
- Preventing movement by body-blocking
- Boogie-bombing the other duo
- Blocking the other duo by building in front of them
Keep in mind that accidents do happen and all cases are thoroughly reviewed by UMG staff.
