Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins announced a partnership with Red Bull and a major upcoming Fortnite tournament in his June 17th live stream.
Ninja is one of the most popular battle royale streamers in the world and regarded as one of Fortnite’s top players.
He opened the announcement with a short introduction video and then proceeded to drop details about the event.
He will be joining an exclusive list of Red Bull athletes that includes only three other Esports figures at this time.
If you are interested in registering for the event, you have until the day of the event to register, but you may want to get a headstart as it will likely fill up quickly.
“Red Bull Rise Till Dawn,” the major event, will feature a duos tournament on the 99th floor of the Willis Tower on July 21st.
The tournament requires players to be at least 18 years of age to enter the event; however, fans everywhere will be able to tune into Ninja’s Twitch where they can watch the event live.
A full list of rules and regulations at the event is available here.
Ninja said he thought he wanted DrLupo as his teammate for the duo event, but it appears as if they may have other plans.
Wonder who is casting this event...— DrLupo (@DrLupoOnTwitch) June 17, 2018
