In 2019, the Free Fire World Series final was hosted in Brazil and reached a peak audience of over one million viewers. The victory of the Brazilian team Corinthians drew a lot of attention from big international teams like Team Liquid, which announced a Free Fire squad right after. The 2020 edition was supposed to be even bigger but ended up being one of the many international tournaments canceled due to the pandemic.

The announcement of the FFCS is one of many attempts made by Garena to still engage with its fan base during these times. After many smaller regional tournaments since March, the battle royale developer is betting on something bigger but still online.
