The rise of Free Fire esports

Free Fire was named “Esports Mobile Game of the Year” by the Esports Awards 2021 in November 2021, marking the second year in a row that the game won the accolade. The award comes hot on the heels of FFWS 2021 Singapore (FFWS 2021 SG) which delivered record viewership across multiple platforms.

The Finals of the FFWS 2021 SG hit a peak of 5.4 million concurrent online viewers, which is the highest peak viewership of any esports match in history, excluding Chinese platforms, according to Esports Charts.
