Free Fire Will Be Launching An Esports Division For North America

Garena announced this week that they're officially launching their own Free Fire Pro Series in North America at the end of October. The company is currently taking registrations as we speak with the first major tournament starting on October 30th to see who some of the best of the best are. From there, the company will be running Group Stages starting on November 13th, with the Grand Finals to be held from December 17th-19th. No word yet if those finals will be in person or not, but it wouldn't surprise us if they made a play to hold them in Las Vegas after the success of their World Record. We have more info on the series below.

Registration is now open for the Free Fire Pro Series, which will land in North America for players to compete for a slice of the $50,000 prize pool. The Free Fire Pro Series will be Garena's first official competitive tournament in the region and allow players to compete to be the best in North America and introduce more esports fans to the ones of the world's most popular games. Over the course of 7 weekends, North America's best Free Fire players will vie for a spot in the Grand Finals, being held the weekend of December 17, 2021.

Along with payouts for the top 12 placing teams, bounties will be in play for more chances to win.
