It was all about Brazil throughout the tournament. Garena hosted the second tournament of the game at The Barra Olympic Park in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Brazil's native DJ Alok opened the event with his live performance. The event began and the average watching was going above one million in Free Fire's Brazil YouTube channel where the stream was in Brazil's native language. Two Brazilian teams competed in the tournament but Corinthians was the one to take the trophy home. Nobru from team Corinthians became the MVP of the tournament and took a prize of $22,000. This is the second time that a Brazilian player has become the MVP of the tournament as previously Brazilian player Kronos from tea Golpistats won the MVP of Free Fire World Cup 2019 held in Bangkok, Thailand.

An interesting note, Escharts recently tweeted that the event had over 2 million peak viewers which is the highest for any mobile esports tournament ever. Here's the tweet:

So the popularity of the game has increased a lot and we can not wait for its next tournament.
