With eight teams of representatives from six countries coming together for the exciting competition, the championship brought passionate players all over the globe to a single location, extending the Free Fire gaming community beyond local and regional groups, to global culture.
India was represented by the team Bengal Tiger, comprising 5 players – Ritik Jain (Two Side Gamers), Amit Sharma (Desi Gamers), Promit Banerjee (Free Fire Gamers Zone), Deepak Vetriselvan (Tamil Gamers Brotherhood), and Sunita Thapa (Sooneeta).
Ritik Jain from Two Side Gamers said, “This journey was not about winning for us. The opportunity to travel overseas and meet fellow streamers from other countries was exhilarating. Not only did we get to bond with our peers, we were also able to improve our gameplay from their experiences. We thank Garena for giving us this platform and experience which has been a great learning for us.”
