Fortnite gets a lot of its players from college-aged gamers who are eager to prove their skill in the battle royale. Previously, Epic Games has hosted a seasonal collegiate cup. And now, it looks to be bringing it back for the 2022 fall semester.
In addition to this cup, Fortnite will also host third-party tournaments, competitive scrims, and school-hosted competitions for collegiate players.
This fall’s cup will be run in partnership with the College Carball Association (CCA), which will run tournaments and the registration process. To secure a spot in the events, players will need to verify their student status using this form. Players can also join the CCA Discord if they are having any problems accessing the resources.
If players want to verify their school status, they will be required to submit their current school transcripts. Players must also have a Discord account and join the CCA Discord server linked above.
There is still time to sign up for the Summer Showdown and compete for your share of the $5,000 cash prize. The Summer Showdown will consist of the following dates:
- July 28: Summer Showdown Open No. 1
- Aug. 4: Summer Showdown Open No. 2
- Aug. 11: Summer Showdown Open No. 3

- Sept. 8: Solo Battle Royale
- Oct. 5: Trios Zero Build
