Free Fire: Garena unveils exciting 2022 esports roadmap for India

One blockbuster tournament per quarter!

Garena has announced an intriguing Free Fire 2022 esports roadmap for India. Free Fire will stage four blockbuster events across two pro circuits next year, with a total prize pool of more than INR 2.7 crore, following a stellar year of esports in 2021. Garena will ensure that Free Fire fans and players can look forward to a constant pipeline of esports events in India throughout the year, with a cadence of one major tournament each quarter.

The competitions will be accessible to all aspiring teams and players, providing an opportunity for everyone to compete against the best on a national level. These will eventually lead to Free Fire’s worldwide competitions, which are among the most eagerly anticipated and widely followed mobile esports events in the world. Other smaller-scale community-focused competitions are also in the works, according to Garena, and will be unveiled shortly.

Tournaments planned in Free Fire 2022 esports roadmap for India

Free Fire India Pro Esports Circuit

Garena’s esports roadmap for 2022 will include two Pro seasons, each with two major competitions – a Free Fire Pro League (FFPL) final and a Free Fire India Championship (FFIC) final. The prize fund for each Pro season would be more than INR 1.35 crore.

Garena’s four major Free Fire events in India will be held in the following chronological sequence in 2022.

  1. Free Fire India Championship 2022 Spring
  2. Free Fire Pro League 2022 Summer
  3. Free Fire India Championship 2022 Fall
  4. Free Fire Pro League 2022 Winter

The 2022 Pro Esports Circuit will get off with FFIC 2022 Spring, which will be the season’s inaugural competition. As a result, the top six teams from the FFPL 2021 Winter will automatically qualify for the FFIC 2022 Spring (more on the FFIC 2022 Spring later).

Each FFIC will serve as a national qualifier for the worldwide events hosted by Free Fire. It will bring the top teams from around India together to battle for a prize fund of INR 1 crore, the title of the best team in India, and the coveted opportunity to represent their country in the international arena.

There are two possibilities for teams to qualify for the FFIC league stage:

  • In the previous season’s Free Fire Pro League event, place in the top six.
  • Advance to the FFIC’s closed qualifying stage and place in the top 12.

Through the in-game mode Free Fire Cup, all aspiring Esports teams and players will be allowed to compete in the open qualifications. The best teams from the Free Fire Cup will advance to the closed qualifications, where they will face the Free Fire Pro League’s 7th through 12th place clubs. The remaining 12 berths in the FFIC league stage will be filled by these clubs.

Over the duration of the league, the 18 clubs in the FFIC league stage will participate in a series of matches. The top 6 teams will advance straight to the grand finals, while the remaining 12 teams will battle for the remaining 6 spots in the play-ins.

Free Fire Pro League

Each Pro League event will include 18 teams: the top 12 teams from the previous season’s FFIC as well as the top 6 teams from the open qualifiers. Teams will compete for a prize fund of INR 35 lakhs and a spot in the next FFIC as one of the top-seeded in each Pro League tournament.

The top six teams will go immediately to the next FFIC league level, while the seventh through twelfth teams will gain the ability to skip the open qualifications stage and go straight to the closed qualifiers.

The top six finalists from the FFPL 2021 Winter will be seeded straight into the FFIC 2022 Spring league stage for the FFIC 2022 Spring. The remaining 6 finalists from the FFPL 2021 Winter will play in closed qualifications for the remaining 12 seats in the league stage, alongside teams who advanced via the open qualifiers. The top 12 teams from the league stage will advance to the FFIC 2022 Spring grand finals.
