Garena launching MENA online Esport tournament with massive $10,000 prize pool

Game company Garena is launching its first-ever solo battle royale competition across the MENA region, and all those who join have a chance to get in on a whopping $10,000 (around Dhs36,000) prize pool.

Running from Sunday May 3 to Saturday May 16, the online competition will see the best Free Fire gamers take part in daily matches across two of the game’s classic maps.

Registration to the ‘Lone Wolf’ online tournament kick off on Thursday April 30 until Friday May 1, while qualifying rounds will take place from Sunday May 3.

Those who claim the most points by beating other players will advance to the next round, while those who lose will be given a second chance to advance to the next round on Saturday May 9.

Basically, keep going until you’re the last one left standing.

Garena is expecting more than 20,000 players to compete. Needles to say, it’s going to be tough.

There will also be an Influencers competition that will pit the world’s most famous Free Fire YouTubers, of more than 25 million subscribers between them, against each other.

This takes place from April 30 to May 17, and all the matches will be streamed live on the Free Fire MENA YouTube channel.
