First off, the Neymar Jr Cup is the first competitive mode that is starting today. The competitive mode will start at 9:00 a.m. PDT and is available on all platforms, and is playable in all regions.

On the official Fortnite website, this competitive mode is limited to Europe, but many more regions are listed according to official rules.

Though not entirely a “Cash Cup'', the Neymar Jr Cup will give players from each official winning round a custom-designed pair of football boots. Plus, anyone who scores eight points will receive a ‘Spin Winner’ emote as well.

Fortnite competitive on Twitter recently had some issues with the cup on players not being able to join. However, it has since been resolved.

On the other end, the official Fortnite Champion Series for the Chapter 2 – Season 6 qualifiers round has started and allows players to enter if they please. Any trio or group could have entered already. It started on April 22nd for those in the Middle East.

Those who win the qualifiers round in this Fortnite competitive mode will continue to the Semifinals. Winners will play in the Finals from May 28 - 30.

Winners of the Fortnite Champion Series receive a cash prize. While the exact amount depends on the region, first place winners could get anywhere from $22,000 to $300,000 in cash prizes.
