Fortnite is now a part of PlayVS, "the only place" where esports is treated like a recognized sport in universities.

PlayVS offers youth players(aged 13 to 18) and college students the opportunity to participate in open national leagues as well as regional leagues. Students and youth players participating in these tournaments via PlayVS can do so for free without any participation or entry fee.

The registration process for PlayVS is fairly simple. All that players need to do is create an account on the PlayVS website and they can get started by registering for upcoming tournaments. However, players cannot register for trio tournaments by themselves.

Players will need to be registered with a school or university to register for the PlayVS Youth League tournaments. Additionally, players will also require a team to compete if they are looking to participate in a trios tournament.
