Garena is again holding a global e-sports competition for his popular battle royale game, Free Fire.
Named the Free Fire World Series (FFWS) 2021 Singapore (SG), this international tournament is claimed to be the first Free Fire competition with a total prize pool of 2 million US dollars.
In this competition, 22 teams from 14 regions will compete. As the name implies, this competition will be held in Singapore.
The FFWS 2021 SG event itself will begin with the Play-ins round on May 22, followed by the Finals round on May 29.
The Play-ins round will bring together 12 teams who occupy first or second place in their respective regional level tournaments, as can be seen in the following FFWS 2021 SG match chart.
The third year of FFWS Later, all teams in the Finals round will compete in six rounds on three maps (Bermuda, Purgatory, and Kalahari).
The amount of points collected by each team depends on the team ranking in a round and of course the number of kills that were successfully obtained.
For information, FFWS 2021 itself is the third year that this world-class Free Fire tournament is being held.
The first FFWS event itself was held two years ago, where Garena held FFWS 2019 offline with a total prize pool of 400,000 US dollars.
In the second year, the FFWS title was changed to FFCS 2020 with a virtual tournament mechanism as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic in the global espots industry. The total prize pool is 300,000 US dollars.
The FFWS 2021 will later be held offline in Singapore. The organizers themselves claim that they will continue to prioritize the health, safety and security of the teams that will compete.
“We are working with relevant authorities to ensure we can still present the best Free Fire tournament,” said Global Esports Manager Garena, Justin Lye.
“Safety has been and will continue to be our greatest priority when carrying out this event,” concluded Justin.
