The second Fortnite Pro-Am event is about to happen today. An event in which celebrities take place by teaming with one of the most notorious and professional Fortnite players in the world, but also favorite streamers to many people across the globe. The Fortnite Pro-Am could easily emerge as one of the most entertaining Fortnite events.
The event will take place in Los Angeles, more precisely as a part of E3 2019, identical to the previous year. Compared to the previous year, however, it is supposed to have a slightly different competing format. If the event remains the same as the last year, it will probably concern Duos, in which one streamer will team up with one celebrity.
Even if the list of streamers somewhat remains the same as last year, the list of celebrities joining for this year’s Fortnite Pro-AM is different.

Below you can find all of the streamers teaming up with the celebrities.

The disclosed list above will probably be the final without further changes, as Tyler “Ninja” Blevins will team up with Marshawn Lynch, While Tfue will have Josh Hart as his second hand to master the tournament.
Last year’s Fortnite Pro-Am trophy belonged to Marshmello and Ninja, so it will be interesting to see if Tyler “Ninja” Blevins can become the first Fortnite Pro-Am back-to-back champion.
Fortnite Pro-Am Start Time
Being set in Los Angeles, other time zones such as Europe will have to wait until the early morning to witness the final outcome of the event. Below you can find the official Start Time, which usually gets delayed due to the nature of the event.
- Start Time: Today, Sunday @ 7:30 PM ET or 4:30 PM PT.
Fortnite Pro-Am Prize Pool
Similar to the last year of Fortnite Pro-Am, this year Epic Games offers a charitable prize pool of $3,000,000. Basically, the winning teams make a choice after which a charitable donation equal to the money they’ve earned is distributed.
The Prize Pool should spread among the players as in the last year, considering it is the same amount of Prize Pool.
Where to Watch Fortnite Pro-Am
The most important segment of the event is to be followed and watched by the whole globe, considering the entertainment it offers. Simply said, the event will be live-streamed on Twitch. More precisely, on the official Fortnite Twitch Channel, at which most of the Fortnite related events are showcased.
Watch live video from Fortnite on www.twitch.tvThere are not many forecasts we could give ahead of the event, but we believe it will be a tight run between Ninja, CloaK, and Tfue, one of the most known Fortnite personalities. Dr. Lupo and Courage may also develop a surprise, knowing that Courage managed to place second in the last year’s Fortnite Pro-AM event.
Anyhow, more about this to be talked after the event takes place today, at 7:30 PM.
