Here are the announced teams, who will be competing for a share of the $200,000 prize pool. The names of the teams are for their captains, who are community-favorites:

These are among the most popular creators and streamers out there, so the competition is truly steep. According to Epic Games, the following teams will also be revealed as the event grows closer:

  • Team NickEh30
  • Team SypherPK
  • Team Annoying

A total of eight teams are yet to be revealed, so it is sure to be a stacked event.

Epic is bringing in a lot of talent for this stream to try and make it the best experience for those watching at home.

  • GlitterXplosion

Casters:

Additionally, in a new change for this Fortnite Twitch Rivals, the captain of the team (the one named above) will receive an in-game locker bundle. Only a few Fortnite players have earned this, so it is a unique opportunity.

As for Twitch Drops, which have become a staple of the event, there is one cosmetic reward for watching. Fortnite players can earn the Purple Football Llama Spray by tuning into the official broadcast on the Twitch Rivals channel.

As always, linking the Epic Games account with Twitch is required to earn any sort of prize. It's not clear how long players have to watch to earn the reward at this point, so it's best to stay tuned in for the entire thing.
