Team Xenomorphs & Team BFF are the two finalists that will face-off against each other at DreamHack Mumbai.
Samim & Zeeshan were the two finalists but this particular title was not a part of the DreamHack Mumbai bandwagon and hence was played out on the spot with Samim defeating Zeeshan, claiming the North-East Esports Championship – Fifa along with a cash prize of INR 25,000.
