The road to the FFIC 2021 will not be easy; teams will have to navigate through a total of five arduous stages in order to win the tournament’s ultimate prize. All of the matches will be played in the Battle Royale Squad mode.
Teams will pass through two stages to qualify for the FFIC 2021 Spring. All of the participants will first compete in the Free Fire Cup (FFC) mode, which will have the top 48 teams advance to the league qualifiers. These will take place on Feb 4 and 5 and the top 18 teams will be shortlisted for the FFIC 2021 Spring.
The FFIC 2021 Spring will continue with teams competing across a further three stages – the league stage, play-ins, and grand finals. The League Stage will take place between Feb. 19 to March 7 and will see the top 18 teams divided into three groups of six teams. Each group will play against each other round-robin style over the course of nine league days. The top two teams from each of the three groups will proceed directly to the grand finals. After that, the remaining 12 teams will take part in the play-Ins on March 14, where they will battle it out for the remaining six grand final spots.
The FFIC 2021 Spring Grand Finals will see these 12 teams battle for a share of the INR 75,00,000 prize pool on March 21, 2020.
