Garena Shares 2021 Esports Roadmap For Free Fire In Malaysia

Garena has shared its plan to continue supporting the esports scene for its free-to-play mobile battle royale game, Free Fire, in Malaysia.

Three major Free Fire tournaments will commence throughout 2021 for Malaysia, with a total of $150,000 USD (roughly RM605,175) worth of prize pool. The tournaments will guarantee top teams direct qualification for the following tournament.

There will be two Free Fire MCP Majors in 2021. This is open to teams in Malaysia, Cambodia and the Philippines. Both seasons will see in-game qualifiers that will narrow down the top 24 for each country. This will then proceed to the quarter-finals that will select the best 12 teams to go to the league stage.

The league stage for Free Fire MCP Majors will also feature the top six teams from the Free Fire Tri-Nations Cup- making it an 18-team league. This will be a six-weekend battle which then proceeds to the Grand Finals. The top six teams will get a direct invite for the next season of MCP Majors.

Between the seasons, there will be the Free Fire Malaysia Championship. This is specifically for Malaysia- where the early stage will narrow down to the top 48 teams to the qualifier finals. From there, 18 teams will proceed to the league stage, to be played over four weekends. Top 12 from this will qualify to the finals.

Having publisher-backed tournaments like this is good to bring stability for the game’s esports ecosystem, and Garena is showing that they are here for the long run to support their Free Fire here.
