Garena has finally made an official announcement about the future of the second biggest tournament in 2020, the Free Fire Champions Cup. This was actually issued out last week, but only in Spanish and Portuguese. No further information about it was released since the event’s previous postponement on March 6.

2020’s Free Fire Champions Cup was supposed to be held in Jakarta, Indonesia on April 9, with the best teams in the world participated. It was part of Garena’s grand plan to push Free Fire esports to the next level. The tournament was initially announced back in January, along with two other Global events in June and July. This is more or less a copy of PUBG Mobile and other esports’ tournament format, with 3 major tournaments over the year leading to a World Series in November. While the Jakarta tournament is canceled, there is still a small chance for the rest of the tournaments to occur, if the current pandemic situation dies down a bit.

Furthermore, Garena said that the pandemic issue is the main reason behind the cancelation, as with Indonesia at over 10k confirmed cases currently, it is pretty much impossible to organize any kind of event there. Aside from this tournament, other regional competitions for Free Fire in the first half of the year is also canceled. To make up for this, Garena is going to provide the fans with alternate esports contents – such as the Free Fire India Solos (FFIS) 2020, a collaboration with Paytm First Games. FFIS will take place in either May or June this year. Other smaller amateur events like the Scrim Wars and Streamers Battle have also been started.
