The Free Fire World Series 2019 concluded today with the home team Corinthians taking home the trophy. After eight intense rounds at a packed Barra Olympic Park in Rio de Janeiro, the Brazilians managed to edge out a lead of 110 points to win the global tournament.

Even with the support of the home crowd, it wasn’t an easy run for Corinthians. They faced stiff competition by Sbornaya CHR, the eventual runners-up from Russia. The Russian team was leading the points table coming into the final game of the tournament but a “Booyah!” by Corinthians solidified their win.

The team will receive $200,000 for this victory. Corinthians’ Bruno “Nobru” Goes earned the title of MVP of the tournament and will receive $22,000 for his efforts. Sbornaya CHR will get $80,000 while the third-placed team Illuminate will pocket $40,000.
