The Super Bowl Is Coming To Fortnite

Twitch doesn't have Ninja or Shroud anymore, but it does have the Super Bowl. Twitch is pairing up professional football players and professional streamers for the Twitch Rivals Streamer Bowl at the end of this month. What will they play? Fortnite of course.

On Jan. 30, 16 different pairs of football players and streamers will compete in Fortnite duos for a $500,000 prize. This not-so-small prize pool goes to the winners' charity of choice. Twitch is going all out, hosting the event from the NFL Players Association party in Miami, Florida. Swank. Miami just so happens to be the place the real, regular Super Bowl is being hosted this year, in case you didn't know.

Yesterday, streamers battled it out in the Draft Showdown, competing against each other for the first pick of their favorite NFL player. The way it shook out was as follows:

  • Bugha and JuJu Smith-Schuster
  • LosPollosTV and Jamal Adams
  • Symfuhny and D.K. Metcalf
  • Dr. Lupo and Keenan Allen
  • Tfue and Kyler Murray
  • Nick Mercs and Mike Evans
  • TimTheTatman and Johnathan Abram
  • Chapand Kyle Van Noy
  • Clix and Tarik Cohen
  • NickEh30 and David Morgan
  • Reverse2K and Baker Mayfield
  • Elded and Kenyan Drake
  • Ayden and Kurt Benkert
  • UnknownxArmy and Avonte Maddox
  • NateHill and Eddie Vanderdoes
  • BrookeAB and Eric Ebron

It's likely that streamers were targeting players who have been known to dabble in Fortnite. NFL wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, for example, has been known to play with none other than Ninja. And this is far from the first Fortnite tournament to make use of the power of celebrity. Every year, Epic Games rounds up willing, and questionably skilled, celebrities to participate in the Fortnite Pro-Am. Very similar to this event, players compete in duos for the sake of charity. Cool.

The Twitch Rivals Streamer Bowl starts on Jan. 30 at 6 p.m. ET, complete with a pre-game show at 5 p.m.
