The Free Fire League (FFL) is expanding in Latin America. It’s a move that seeks to focus more on the eSports market in the region, where battle royale video games are a huge success.
Free Fire is a success story that has established itself as the king of mobile games, making it clear that it has great potential. On the other hand, the FFL is one of the products most enjoyed by gaming fans in the region.

A New FFL Future
Infinix announced recently that it has joined as a sponsor of the FFL. The China-based company has almost 10 years in the mobile device market and just entered the LatAm region. It is now betting on the development of the professional field for future generations and stars of mobile gaming.
The FFL is the stage for the 18 teams that compete within it. They’re all on a mission to be crowned the region’s best and participate in international competitions. As part of this new alliance, gamers will enjoy a better gaming experience with the launch of the new HOT series (Free Fire version), which Infinix plans to launch in the coming months.
It’s a great opportunity for all the players currently participating in the tournament and for those with the goal of competing at these levels. The sponsorship will help the ecosystem both in visibility and in increasing the prizes of future competitions.
The Story Behind Free Fire
Free Fire is a mobile battle royale game developed by Garena that pits 50 players against each other on an increasingly shrinking map. The last player or team standing wins. While it may share some similarities with games like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) and Fortnite, Free Fire has managed to carve out its own niche with a more arcade-style approach that is more conducive to shorter play sessions on mobile devices.
Since its launch in 2017, Free Fire has grown exponentially in popularity, especially in regions like Latin America and Southeast Asia. The game now boasts over 150 million monthly active users and is one of the most downloaded mobile games ever. Along with this growth has come an increase in competitive play, with numerous tournaments appearing around the globe.
When it comes to Free Fire competitions and tournaments, there are a few different types that you can participate in. Here is a guide to the different types of competitions and tournaments that you can find in Free Fire:
- One vs. One Duels – These duels are typically between two players who go head-to-head in a battle to the death. The last player standing is the winner.
- Team Battle Royale – In this type of competition, teams of 4 or 5 players compete against each other in a larger battle royale match. The last team standing is the winner.
- Guild Wars – Guild Wars are large-scale competitions between guilds, or teams of players, who compete against each other for rewards and bragging rights.
- Special Events – Occasionally, Garena will host special events with unique rulesets and prizes.
Finding Other Free Fire Players
In a game like Free Fire, it’s important to have friends to play with, and there are several tips on how to find other players to join your squad. One of the first is to check out the in-game chat rooms. There are always people looking for others to play with in the game’s chat rooms.
Players can also ask around in Discord channels or other online communities. Those already part of a gaming community will easily find others who also play Free Fire.
Lastly, use the “looking for group” feature on third-party websites. Plenty of websites are dedicated to helping gamers find others to play with. Just use the search function to find players looking for squadmates in Free Fire.
