Just in case you haven't seen enough of TikTok lately - surely I'm not the only one on it about 5,000 times more a day since lockdown? - it's now making a play for esports, too, with its first ever esports tournament, the TikTok Cup.
Over the last couple of weeks, American college students have been invited to represent their schools in a "free $60,000 prize pool event spanning esports tournaments for all your favourite games, livestream broadcasts, and giveaways".
"The TikTok Cup consists of eight individual online tournaments," states the website, which explains that the competition is run in partnership with the Collegiate StarLeague. "The tournaments are open to students currently enrolled at an accredited university or college in the US. All tournaments are team-based, and teams must be made up wholly of students enrolled at the same school. Tournament schedule and additional eligibility requirements, caps on registration, software, and account requirements, differ based on game title."
Competitors can take on their opponents across four different games - CS:GO, League of Legends, Rocket League and, of course, Fortnite. There's still time to apply, too, if you're keen, but don't hang about - registration closes soon. Prizes range from $500 to $5000 - neither of which I'd turn my nose up at - but you need to be enrolled at an accredited US college or university in order to take part.
