South Africa is going on lockdown for three weeks, starting today (27 March 2020). With strict rules in place, nobody except for essential personal can move about. That’s where some great local, online esports action comes into play. Enter the ATK Fortnite Fridays weekly solos tournament, perfect for those itching for some Fortnite action.

ATK Fortnite Fridays details

The ATK Fortnite Fridays weekly solos tournament kicks off this afternoon (27 March) at 16:00. There’s a R1,000 prize pool up for grabs, which is a nice bit of supply money during the lockdown.
