A new Fortnite Switch Tournament has recently been announced and top placing participants have a chance to get the new Lovely skin for free.

Giving out cosmetic items as tournament rewards is not a new thing in Fortnite. Cash prize tournaments are dominated by pros as they offer a cash prize to only a few. On the other hand, Fortnite tournaments that have cosmetic rewards are more lenient and thousands of participants in each region have a chance to get their hands on new unreleased cosmetic items for free. Which makes these tournaments a great attraction for players of all skill levels.

Following the success of previous tournaments that offered skin bundles as rewards, Epic Games has announced a new tournament called the Fortnite Switch Cup. Below are all the details we know so far about the upcoming Switch Cup in Fortnite.
