After significant changes to Free Fire’s roadmap announced by Garena to revitalise the game’s appeal, the decision to bring the FFWS Global Finals back to Brazil is seen as a strategic move. The South American nation boasts one of the game’s largest fan bases and has historically been a vital driving force for Free Fire esports viewership.

With the previous two editions of FFWS taking place in Thailand, the substantial time difference posed a challenge for Brazilian viewers. Returning to Brazil is expected to enhance global viewership, aligning with Garena’s efforts to reinvigorate the game’s standing.
Scheduled for November, the FFWS Global Finals will feature top teams from regional leagues vying for supremacy. Recall the inaugural FFWS in Brazil, where the home team Corinthians clinched the trophy, amassing an impressive peak viewership of over 2 million, according to Esports Charts.
However, the game witnessed a subsequent rise and fall in viewership, with last year’s peak standing at 570,000. Magic Squad secured victory for Brazil, outshining Thailand’s Buriram. The upcoming tournament will showcase whether Brazil can reclaim its dominance in the Free Fire esports landscape.
As the FFWS 2024 Global Finals approaches, regional leagues in Brazil, Southeast Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa are set to kick off in the coming months, setting the stage for intense competition.
Furthermore, the global Free Fire esports scene will converge at the Esports World Cup 2024 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, next July, adding another layer of excitement and anticipation to the evolving narrative of Free Fire on the world stage.
