How to create private matches in Fortnite

To create a private match in Fortnite, you have to have special permissionsthat Epic Games offers to certain people: these are usually influencers, i.e. players with a certain degree of fame on the internet who are able to persuade several dozen people to play in the same game. In addition to the influencers, this option is also active for professional players.

If our profile doesn’t fit the above points, we still have a remote possibility. In order to do this, we need a real tournament organize and email our proposal to [email protected]

Keep in mind that Epic Games will not grant these permissions easily. So make sure your proposal includes everything: interested tournament players, Support from influential people or organizations, advertising, attractive prizes… However, it’s possible that Epic Games will reject our proposal, so don’t think about hosting the tournament just to get the permits. Also, permits can be revoked within days or hours after the tournament.
