EWar Free Fire Premier League Format
In Season 1 of FPL, around 9 games (matches) will be played on a daily basis. The League will be progressing through a series of consecutive stages — 45 qualifiers’ matches with 540 teams, 18 quarter-final matches with 90 teams, and 16 semi-final matches with 24 teams.
Before the Semi-Finals and Final phase of the tournament, 6 franchise/state owners will participate in a virtual-wallet-based auction (somewhat similar to the real-money based auction that happens before IPL) to bid for the 12 top ‘invited teams’ of the tournament, and each owner will be buying/owning 2 teams. Following the bidding process, these teams will be allotted to their respective state and will enter the tournament to play against the qualified ‘underdog teams’ from the preceding stages. Among the team owners are Mr. Nimish Raut, Fnatic India Head & Delhi owner and Mr. Rushindra Sinha, Founder of Global Esports & Maharashtra owner.
