Gonna Need Milk has unveiled a groundbreaking initiative aimed at fostering change within the professional gaming community. The Milk Cup, a series of major female Fortnite tournaments in North America, seeks to provide women with a platform and the opportunity to compete for the largest prize pool ever seen in a female Fortnite tournament in the region.

Bridging the Gender Gap in Esports

The $250,000 prize pool is intended to address the gender pay gap prevalent in esports, offering female gamers a chance to showcase their skills and earn recognition on a competitive stage.

The Milk Cup, developed in collaboration with female players, is designed to meet the specific needs of professional gaming and create a safe space for women to compete at the highest level.

Tournament Details

Registrations for the pre-qualifiers are now open on the official Gonna Need Milk website, with the first tournament scheduled for late May. The Milk Cup will feature trios competition, inviting over 400 female players to participate and extending the opportunity to as many individuals as possible.

The tournament series is produced exclusively by Raidiant’s all-female team, in partnership with Women of the eRena (WOTE), and will be broadcasted live on Twitch. The major events and the Grand Final promise to deliver thrilling gameplay and showcase the talent of female Fortnite players to a global audience.

Empowering Female Gamers

Yin Woon Rani, CEO of MilkPEP, expressed the organization’s commitment to supporting female athletes and empowering young girls worldwide. The Milk Cup aims to inspire and motivate women in gaming while fostering an industry that values and rewards talent.

Content creator “ThePeachCobbler,” affectionately known as Peach, played a pivotal role in conceptualizing The Milk Cup and will serve as an advisor for the tournament’s structure and key aspects.

The tournament not only celebrates women in gaming but also raises awareness about gender inequalities within the industry.
