What you need to know about the Free Fire World Series 2021, including how to watch, the schedule and more when it arrives in Singapore during May 2021.
After announcing the 2021 roadmap regarding the competitive scene of their popular mobile game, Garena has decided to release all the info about the return of their maximum competition, the Free Fire World Series 2021, after a year of absence in which it was replaced by the Continental Series.

It’s time to learn all the details about this big event, which will seek to crown the best Free Fire squad in the world.

These teams will compete in six matches, which will be held between the three available maps of the game: Bermuda, Purgatory and Kalahari.

Each team will receive a certain amount of points depending on in which position they finished, and how many kills the members of each squad managed to accumulate during the match

At the end of the six matches, the two teams that achieve the highest score will advance to the next phase of the Free Fire World Series 2021.

This event will be supported by the Singapore Tourism Board (STB), while its organization will be in charge of several organizations, including the Singapore Cybersports and Online Gaming Association (SCOGA), in search of being able to apply the appropriate health protocols to maintain the integrity of the players.

One of the executive directors of the STB, Jean Ng, mentioned that: "We are proud to support our homegrown gaming company Garena as they prepare for Free Fire World Series 2021, one of the world's leading e-sports tournaments. The return of such events testifies to Singapore's growing reputation as an e-sports destination, as well as our ability to host such events safely."
