BLAST to produce Fortnite Championship Series

February 23, 2022

BLAST builds upon its previous partnership with Fortnite.

Esports production firm and tournament organiser BLAST has announced a partnership with Fortnite, which will see the former produce all Fortnite Championship Series (FNCS) events in 2022.
The 2022 schedule kicks off with the Season 1 of FNCS Chapter 3, which will be played in February and March and has a prize pool of over US$3m. It will also be the first competitive series of 2022.

Leo Matlock, MD for Development at BLAST, commented:
“We are delighted to be able to establish this year-long partnership with Fortnite. BLAST has been able to build trust and a fantastic working relationship with the Fortnite Competitive team to create incredible experiences for the community.
“We loved every minute of FNCS All-Star Showdown and FNCS Grand Royale and have amazing plans for FNCS Chapter 3, which kicks off with Season 1 on February 17th where we have a record amount of content for fans to enjoy alongside our world-class production as the best in the world battle it out for over US$3m in the prize pool.”

The biggest competitive series in Fortnite, the FNCS Chapter 2 was held from October 2019 to December 2021. BLAST has also stated that the Fortnite partnership is one of its biggest partnerships since Counter-Striker: Global Offensive’s BLAST Premier tournament.
BLAST had previously produced the FNCS All-Star Showdown and Grand Royale events in 2021, and the current deal expands on that partnership.
