Hosted by ACGL, the Fortnite Lonely Hearts solo cup doesn’t have a cash prize, but everyone is still a winner.

At the time of writing, there are 20 participants registered already. It is important to note that no ELO will be awarded for the tournament. The Fortnite Lonely Hearts solo cup is open only to players who currently reside in a sub-Saharan African country.
