The Super Bowl is drawing near, and to celebrate, Epic is bringing back Fortnite’s NFL skins. For a limited time, starting on Jan. 30, the NFL outfit will be available in the Fortnite in-game shop, and can be turned into any of the 32 NFL team uniforms once it’s purchased.

The two teams that are actually facing off in the Super Bowl this year, the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs, will get a special in-game commemoration. The two teams in the Team Rumble mode will now take on the uniforms of the two contenders from now until Super Bowl Sunday.

Epic isn’t just limiting this year’s Fortnite Super Bowl festivities to in-game content. There will also be a Fortnite tournament featuring duo teams made up of Fortnite pros and NFL stars. The event will take place live from Miami, where this year’s Super Bowl is being held, and the winning duo will get a $500,000 donation to a charity of their choice. The tournament will be streamed on the Twitch Rivals channel on Jan. 30 at 6 p.m. ET. As for Super Bowl LIV itself, the big game will kick off at 6:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, Feb. 2.
