The top FFC teams will be joined by seeded teams from the recent Free Fire Pro League (FFPL) 2021 Winter, as they compete for the lion’s share of the Rs 1 Crore prize pool.
The top-performing teams at FFIC 2022 Spring will also stand a chance to represent the region at Free Fire World Series 2022 Sentosa, the title’s most iconic global offline tournament, as well as to directly qualify for the next Free Fire Pro League 2022 Summer.
The road to being crowned FFIC 2022 Spring Champions will not be easy; teams will have to navigate through a total of five challenging stages in order to clinch the tournament’s ultimate prize. All of the matches will be played in the Battle Royale Squad mode.
The tournament will begin with two qualifier stages where teams battle it out to earn a spot in the FFIC 2022 Spring League Stage. Participants will first compete in the open qualifiers via the Free Fire Cup (FFC) mode, which will see the top 42 teams advancing to the Closed Qualifiers.

Taking place on 16 to 20 February, the Closed Qualifiers will further whittle the teams down to the top 12 – these 12 teams, together with the top 6 seeded teams from FFPL 2021 Winter will embark on the FFIC 2022 Spring League Stage.
