Since Epic Games announced in May that $100 million would be on the line for the first Fortnite: Battle Royale competitive season, numerous esports teams have built their squads.

Although only one Epic-run event has been confirmed, the Fortnite World Cup in early 2019, nearly every popular organization has jumped in on the Fortnite bandwagon hoping their team will come out victorious. With so much money on the line, who can blame them?

Epic made its pledge to the esports community and organizations all over the world have responded. From the United States to France to Australia, there is no shortage of Fortnite rosters.
