Fortnite AFL Community battles are coming

It seems like everyone is getting in on Fortnite with crossovers and tournaments. Three was recently MLB and NFL collaborations with Fortnite in tournaments and a long moist of brands getting in on the action with crossover skins.

The latest comes in the form of the Australian Football League (AFL). Starting at 9:00 AM AEDT on January 27th, you will be able to sign up to compete with community creators and players representing 18 AFL teams to take your shot at winning some V-Bucks and a footy-themed Spray in the AFL Community Battles.

Every member of the winning team will get 800 V-Bucks each, those of the 2nd-place team will get 400 V-Bucks each, and those of the 3rd-place team will get 200 V-Bucks each. Be one of the first 5,000 people to sign up with a team to have your points count towards the overall team total.


If you’re not one of the first 5,000, you’ll still be able to compete as a Fan on your own leaderboard for bragging rights and earn the footy-themed Spray. You may make your way onto the team if someone drops out too, so be ready!

And there’s a small Hamilton connection here too. Hamilton has an Aussie-rules footy team in the Hamilton Wildcats. The Wildcats borrows the same logo as the Richmond Tigers of the AFL.

If you play Fortnite and are a fan of footy you should head on over, sign up, and support your team. Hopefully we’ll get some AFL skins too.
