YouTuber Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem and online tournament host UMG have teamed up once again to host the ninth running of the ‘Friday Fortnite’ celebrity tournament.
Returning for its ninth consecutive week on July 6th, the popular competition will once again feature a massive $20,000 prize pool divided among the top three finalists.
The brainchild of KEEMSTAR, Friday Fortnite features some of the biggest names in the online community, including members of the Clout Gang, FaZe Clan, Team SoloMid, The Sidemen, OpTic Gaming, 100 Thieves, Luminosity Gaming, and a host of other big YouTubers and Twitch Streamers such as Ninja, Roman Atwood, Nadeshot and more.
The winners of last week’s tournament were former Halo teammates Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Jacob ‘Hysteria’ Reiser, who will be teaming once again to defend their title and become the first two players other than FaZe’s ‘Tfue’ and ‘Cloak’ to have more than one championship under their belt.

The payouts for week nine of Friday Fortnite will be the following:
1st Place – $10,000
2nd Place – $7,000
3rd place – $3,000
Since there are no custom games or lobbies in Fortnite yet, the tournament is played on public servers using the following rules:
UPDATED: You must have your delay set to 120 seconds on your OBS settings when you are streaming, failing to do so will result in a forfeit and or a replay of the match that was played.
How To Win:
For this tournament you will play two games. Each game you must keep track of your kills for each game played. The combined amount of kills for each game will determine which team will win the match. If out of the two games played the kills are tied a third map will be played to determine a winner for the match.
You will party up as a SQUAD or DUOS with your opponent based on the type of match (1v1, 2v2). Any player inside of that queued session MAY NOT destroy any bases made by their opponent, make them fall, or any other actions that may help lead to that person’s death.
Examples of sabotage include but are not limited to:
- Breaking or weakening opponent’s built or non built structures or cover by any means.
- Causing opponents to miss shots or miss opportunities for advancing their scores in any way shape or form.
- Building in front of your opponent.
- Boogie Bombing your opponent.
- The use of a boogie bomb on your opponent at any point in the game are subject to disqualifications.
For no-shows in this tournament if you fail to respond within a fair given time frame you may be forfeited from the tournament.
All forfeits will be handled and made by the judgement of the UMG Admin Demo.
All forfeits to be valid will be reported by the players for them to seek if the match should be replayed and or a forfeit of the match.
The Friday Fortnite #9 tournament will be live-streamed and casted on the UMGEvents Twitch channel, as well as on the individual channels of many of the participants.
Streams of the competition will be added to this article once the start time of the competition draws near.
