Garena Free Fire 2021 Esports Roadmap

Garena today unveiled its 2021 international esports roadmap for Free Fire, its self-developed battle royale title. Fans across the world can look forward to three major international events in 2021: two editions of the Free Fire World Series (FFWS) – Free Fire’s flagship international tournament – in April and November, and the Free Fire All Stars in July.

On top of these, Malaysian fans can witness new and existing teams duke it out in the local scene, with national tournaments like the Free Fire Malaysia Championships (FFMC) filling the gaps between international events.

Garena’s international esports roadmap reflects its continued efforts to excite and delight the global Free Fire community with competitive and premium esports content. Free Fire’s 2021 international esports lineup will showcase the best Free Fire talent from around the world and offer teams the chance to test their skills at the highest level.

The FFWS is Free Fire’s largest and most iconic esports tournament – its inaugural 2019 edition obtained more than 2 million peak concurrent viewers online, which was a world record high for a mobile esports tournament, according to Esports Charts. Replaced in 2020 by the Free Fire Continental Series due to the global pandemic situation, the FFWS will make its return in 2021 with two editions – in April and in November.

Leading up to each edition of this widely anticipated event will be the Free Fire Malaysia, Cambodia, and Philippines (MCP) Majors, the first local recurring tournament concluding this month, where qualifiers win the right to represent their countries at the FFWS!

The April edition of the FFWS will kick off with the Play-ins on April 24 and will conclude with the Finals on May 1. The FFWS will be bigger in scale and production this year. From an initial nine regions spanning Latin America, Europe, and Asia at the FFWS 2019, the April edition of the FFWS will bring together 22 teams from 13 regions, such as the Middle East, Pakistan, and Bangladesh, just to name a few. It will also feature an expanded prize pool of US$2,000,000 – Free Fire’s largest ever!

To mark the grand return of the FFWS in April, Garena has introduced a brand new logo for the FFWS. The sleek new logo features an interlocking “W” and “S” – the initials of “World Series” – that are reminiscent of the flames from a burning torch – an emblem of hope, courage, and vigour. The tournament trophy will also be designed to reflect the new FFWS logo.

More details on the April edition of the FFWS, including participating regions and format, will be announced in the coming weeks. Fans can look forward to more information on the November edition later this year.

Free Fire All Stars

The Free Fire All Stars will bring together the top influencers and professional players from around the world this July. Expect plenty of exciting interactions and memorable moments as the Free Fire community’s most recognisable personalities battle alongside – and go up against – the pros. More details on the Free Fire All Stars will be announced in the coming months.

Join the Free Fire community by downloading Free Fire on the Apple iOS App or Google Play store.
