Play the Fortnite Pelé Cup to win football-themed rewards

Fun tournaments with no financial rewards, where the goal is to win a few skins and emotes, have multiplied in recent months in Fortnite.

In addition to deploying significant partnerships with some of the biggest football clubs on the planet, Epic Games has also teamed up with Brazilian legend Pelé to shape an emote... and a Battle Royale tournament!

We were expecting a tournament played on a brand new LTM, but instead the Pelé Cup will actually take place within the classic battle royale mode.

This event remains an excellent opportunity to get your hands on some trendy cosmetics, which will officially be available in the Item Shop a few days later.
