In addition, there will be two spots reserved for the winners of the qualifying tournaments that are open to all players, giving anyone the opportunity to compete against some of the world’s best players.

However, this tournament will be very much different from any other major Fortnite competitions before it as it will be played in the Playground LTM and have a 1v1 format.
Here are the official procedures and rules, as provided on the FN Pro League webpage:
Players will play a coinflip for their spawn location & match-making region choice. One player lands in Salty Springs, the other lands in Retail Row (house side). Players have 5 minutes to loot up and reach the designated area between the two spawns. From there, it’s a kill-on-sight for a time limit of 15 minutes. Player with the highest health at the end of the round claims victory. Rounds will be a best of three, with players rotating location each game.
Note: If the players are not in the designated location by 50:00 (match time) they forfeit the match, losing one game from the best of three.
