Garena announced that registrations for the Free Fire India Championship (FFIC) 2021 Spring, its flagship event in India, will open next week to all players in India and Nepal. Teams will have from 25 to 29 January to sign up in-game through the Free Fire Cup (FFC) mode and put themselves in the running for a chance to win big from a prize pool of INR 75 lakh.
The top performing teams at the FFIC 2021 Spring will also get the coveted opportunity to represent the region at Free Fire’s next international tournament, as well as to directly qualify for the Free Fire Pro League Summer.
The road to the FFIC 2021 will not be easy; teams will have to navigate through a total of five arduous stages in order to win the tournament’s ultimate prize. All of the matches will be played in the Battle Royale Squad mode.
Teams will have to battle their way through an initial two stages to qualify for the FFIC 2021 Spring. All of the participants will first compete in the Free Fire Cup (FFC) mode, which will see the top 48 teams advance to the League Qualifiers. Taking place on 4 and 5 February, the League Qualifiers will further whittle the teams down to the top 18 – these 18 teams will be shortlisted for the FFIC 2021 Spring.
The FFIC 2021 Spring will continue with teams competing across a further three stages – the League Stage, Play-ins, and Grand Finals.
The League Stage will be the first battle arena. Taking place from 19 February to 7 March, the League Stage will see the top 18 teams divided into 3 groups of 6 teams. Each group will play against each other round robin style over the course of 9 league days.
The top 2 teams from each of the 3 groups will proceed directly to the Grand Finals. Thereafter, the remaining 12 teams will take part in the Play-Ins on 14 March, where they will battle it out for a remaining 6 Grand Final spots.
The FFIC 2021 Spring Grand Finals will see these 12 teams battle for a share of the INR 75 lakh prize pool on 21 March. But the prize money will not be the only reward at stake. The top performing teams at the FFIC 2021 Spring will get the coveted opportunity to represent the region at Free Fire’s next international tournament. The top 6 from FFIC 2021 Spring will also qualify directly for the Free Fire Pro League Summer.
The FFIC 2021 Spring will be broadcast live from the League Stage onwards. Fans can tune in to the Free Fire Esports India YouTube Channel, as well as on Facebook and BOOYAH! to catch all of the high-octane action!
