Format

The main event will be held on March 28. However, that isn't all the action that this event has to offer. Teams will be holding training sessions in advance of the competition to prepare. They'll need to build team chemistry, work on their strategies and learn the ins and outs of Apex Legends.

Teams will be preparing all month long, so keep an eye on your favourite creators socials to follow along with their progress.

For scoring, it is teased that teams will be scored on a variety of challenges. So, expect a few twists along the way.

Onset and Gaskin to cast finals

Now, it wouldn't really be the Apex UK Community Cup without two of the games most popular British casters. Onset and Gaskin will be hosting the finals on March 28, guiding us through the action packed event finale.

The finals will kick off at 1800 GMT.
