Chemin Esports won the Winter season of the Free Fire Pro League 2021, their first-ever official title in Free Fire esports. As a team, they had been in fine form for the past few months, but this was their peak performance.
The side did well in the group stages, where they were second and accumulated 12 headstart points that helped them advance to the finals. Radhe Thakur from Chemin was crowned the MVP for his 15 kills.
Fan favorites and defending champions Total Gaming came second. The team has performed stupendously since the addition of Delete, demonstrating once more why they are so well-followed.
After a middling group stage, GodLike Esports made a comeback to grab third place, while Nigma Galaxy, led by star player Vasiyo, settled for fourth.
The FFPL 2021 boasted a massive prize pool of ₹35 lakhs, out of which Chemin took home ₹15 lakhs, while Total Gaming and GodLike were awarded ₹7.5 lakhs and ₹3.5 lakhs, respectively.
