Set to take place between May 3rd to 16th, the event will have a total prize fund of $10,000 with 20,000 players across the region battling for glory on two classic maps – Bermuda and Purgatory.
During the inaugural edition, the gamers will go head-to-head with the player claiming the most points for kills and placements advancing to the next round.

In addition to the Lone Wolf tournament, Garena will also host an Influencers competition that will pit the world’s most famous Free Fire YouTubers, of more than 25 million subscribers between them, against each other.
To run from April 30 to May 17, all the matches will be streamed live on the Free Fire MENA YouTube channel, enabling fans to follow all the action.
The tournament is part of Garena’s commitment to promote the eSports sector in the region and gives gamers an opportunity to test themselves during the Holy month of Ramadan.
