Every team in the Grand Final has conquered their own trials and tribulations for making it this far and we are all determined to win the title. I wish the best of luck to everyone and may the best time win.”
VIP are taking part in the Grand Final of a Free Fire tournament for the first time and their captain, Abdul Ghafoor Ibrahim believes they will not be fazed by the occasion.
He said: “I’ve noticed that the teams that have qualified for the Grand Final are full of familiar faces. For us, this is the first time we have reached this far in a Garena Free Fire tournament so we are quite nervous but teams should not underestimate us. In a Grand Final, there are no weak teams as everyone is a contender.
“We have worked really hard to get this far and we are not going to let this chance go to waste. We must keep in mind that every other team has the same mindset. Just talking about the Grand Final has got me all excited and I wish everyone the best of luck.”
