18 teams ready for a showdown at Esports World Cup: Free Fire this week

(MENAFN- Spark) Cairo, Egypt - 9 July 2024 - The highly anticipated Esports World Cup: Free Fire is set to take the stage in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia this week! The stakes are high for all eighteen teams as the winner will not only walk away with the biggest slice of the USD1,000,000 prize pool, but also get a ticket to compete in the Free Fire World Series (FFWS) Global Finals 2024 in Brazil later this year.

Esports World Cup: Free Fire will be held across three stages. During the Knock-out Stage from Jul 10 to 12, teams will be separated into three groups of six, with two groups competing per day.

Last but not least, the Grand Final will kick off on Jul 14, with the teams battling it out in a race to the top.
