Catch all the FNCS Major 1 Grand Finals action this weekend!

Competitive Fortnite will crown its first Fortnite Champion Series (FNCS) winners this weekend during the Major 1 Grand Finals. Since the beginning of Chapter 5 Season 1, the world’s top duos have been vying to compete for a piece of the $7 million prize pool and the coveted Axe of Champions. Today, we’ll explain how you can tune in to watch the FNCS tournament and even unlock the free Back Bling 

How can I watch the FNCS Major 1 Grand Finals?

There is no shortage of options to view the FNCS Major 1 Grand Finals. Many players and streamers will broadcast their perspectives on Twitch, giving you a live look at the gameplay as it happens. Otherwise, Fortnite hosts its own broadcast for Europe, NA Central, and Brazil with a team of casters and analysts walking you through the action. 

The official FNCS broadcast occurs simultaneously on Twitch, YouTube, Fortnite’s website, and on the in-game Legend’s Landing map (map code 3303-7480-5925).

Below, we have provided a schedule and relevant stream links ahead of the FNCS Major 1 Grand Finals action, one of which will help you earn the free Back Bling:

Schedule (February 24-25)


  • Broadcast begins at 19:00 CET on both days 

NA Central

How do I unlock the FNCS back bling?

The FNCS Major 1 viewership reward is a Back Bling. Unlike previous years, these are now longer Twitch Drops. To unlock it, you must watch the Grand Finals on Fortnite’s official website for at least 30 minutes. 

If done correctly while logged in to your Epic Games account, your Fortnite account will eventually receive the FNCS Aegis Back Bling reward.
