Australian Open 2019 to host $500000 Fortnite tournament, Fortnite Summer ...


It will be held on the day of the Men’s Singles Final (Sunday January 27) at Margaret Court Arena.


“The Fortnite Summer Smash at the Australian Open will see some of the best gamers from around the country do battle just hours before the world’s best male tennis players compete for the AO title,” Tiley continued.


Its tournaments have at times appeared disorganised and major game-breaking weapons have been put into the game right before competitive events, throwing out balance.

A pro-am Duos event will also be held including popular streamers such as Loserfruit and other notables from gaming and entertainment.


Of the total prize pool, $100,000 will be given away in the Duos event, with the money to be donated to the charity of the winner’s choice.
