The year 2021 is almost over, with the recently concluded Free Fire Asia Championship being the last international tournament in the region. However, Free Fire Esports in India is still in full swing. Garena has just announced yet another big official tournament for the Indian Free Fire community this year: Free Fire Winter Invitational 2021.

In this article, we are going to showcase everything currently available about this tournament, including teams, schedule, prize pool, and format.

Free Fire's 2 recent major tournaments, the India Championship 2021 and the Asia Championship 2021 have been very successful. They both crossed 1 million peak viewers. Despite Winter Invitational being a minor tournament, its new concept would definitely attract viewers and gain further success.

Four Indian teams participated in the Asia Championship but weren't able to perform well. Team Elite finished 8th place while Desi Gamers, Total Gaming, and PVS Gaming couldn't qualify for the finals. Indian teams will definitely bounce back next year.

2. Free Fire Winter Invitational 2021 Teams

Unlike the usual Free Fire tournament, this time, Garena invites the top players from the country to become the captain and form their own team. Afterward, the newly formed squads will fight it out for the trophy. As this is the final tournament of the year, Garena probably thought they should mix it up a little.

It would be fascinating to see what team these captains would select. Furthermore, putting players from the same team head to head against each other would also be pretty exciting as well.

Below is a complete list of invited captains of Garena's Free Fire Winter Invitational 2021:

  1. Javaboy
  2. Iconic
  3. FozyAjay
  4. Killer
  5. Mafia
  6. Delete
  7. PVS Gaming
  8. Jonty
  9. Prince
  10. Yogi
  11. Ayush
  12. Mafia Bala
