Free Fire World Series 2021 (FFWS) will commence from May 22nd in Singapore. However, the two Indian teams qualified for the tournament are unable to partake in FFWS 2021.
In addition, it was announced that the teams won’t be able to compete due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Further, the company disclosed this news through their Facebook post. For instance, this statement comes after the Singapore Government made an announcement.
For instance, the announcement forbids the entry or transit of all long-term pass holders and short-term visitors with a travel history to India from 11:59, April 23.
To clarify, the announcement says–
“We make this difficult decision to proceed with the World Series without the teams from India. after having explored all options to include them. We empathize and share the disappointment of both teams and will award both teams with a share of the prize pool – to recognize their efforts and achievement in qualifying for the World Series”.
Therefore, the two teams, Galaxy Racer and Team Elite, who qualified for the FFWS 2021 won’t be able to play.
However, Garena will share the $2 million grand prize “to recognize their efforts and achievement in the Free Fire World Series”.
In a scenario, when India is having its terrible week to battle the pandemic, Garena is handling the situation fairly.
On the other hand, they are now reorganizing their approach to observe the current situation during the pandemic.
