On Tuesday, June 12th Epic Games is hosting the first ever Fortnite celebrity pro-am tournament with a prize pool of over 3 million dollars to charity. Here’s how you can watch the event.

Some of your favorite celebrities are getting their final practice matches in today as the first every Fortnite celebrity pro-am tournament kicks off this evening. After looking through the list of players and celebs, trust us, you don’t want to miss this.

In this ultimate battle royale, 50 of the world’s best Fortnite gamers are teaming up with 50 celebrities from all different areas of stardom. Epic pulled all the strings imaginable to assemble a cast this star-studded in both the gaming and celebrity communities for a huge E3 event.

Famous Fortnite gamers such as Ninja, Gotaga, Myth, Pokimane and Ali-A (to name a few) will be teamed up with celebs athletes such as UFC fighter (and avid gamer) Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson, NBA star Paul George, actors Joel McHale, Janina Gavankar and musical artists such as Marshmello, Lil Yachty and Desiigner, among many others.

The event kicks-off at 6:30 p.m. ET (3:30 p.m. PDT) and can be streamed on Facebook, Twitter, Twitch, YouTube and Mixer. If you are lucky enough to be at E3, you can watch the event life from the  Banc of California Stadium.

The winner of the event will receive the coveted “Golden pickaxe” along with prize money to the charity of their choosing.

The broadcast will feature top-notch commentating from esports commentator Goldenboy, Justine Ezarik, Gloom and DrLupo, which is sure to be both entertaining and insightful.

Most of us who follow any of these particular gamers and/or celebrities know their respective Fortnite skill levels to some degree, but what we’re most excited for is seeing how they all fare in competition.

If I were betting on the celebrities in the event, I would keep an eye on Mighty Mouse as he’s an avid gamer with a large Twitch following. My dark horse for the event is the duo of Sypher and Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen, who’s been rumored to be pretty good at the game.
