Fortnite fans have been lined up for two hours to be among the first to get swag for Marshmello’s World Cup concert. Event staff told me they stopped several people trying to run in before the stadium opened.
I’m in the metropolitan area for a family matter, and I’ve been taken aback by how much advertising this was getting on the radio and local news networks. I get that Fortnite is popular, but dayum, they’re even pushing it on The Olds.
Also, this is going down at Arthur Ashe Stadium, across from Citi Field. IDK about today’s 1PM game, but the park was pretty packed last night for the Mr. Met on the Moon bobblehead giveaway during the Pirates game. Today is free visors. Could be crowded today in Flushing.
