The Brazilian team announced that they parted ways with B4 in December 2020 Director of Flamengo Esports Fred Tanure Let’s call the partnership a “learning experience for us to move into other modalities”.

The agreement between B4 and Flamengo Esports was deemed a success due to Free Fire’s growing popularity in Brazil. It was therefore not unexpected that the Brazilian organization found a new partner ahead of Liga Brasileira de Free Fire (LBFF) 2021, the title’s premier esports competition in the region.

Other popular eSports teams participating in the LBFF include, among others TeamLiquid and FURY, while B4 will also compete as a separate entity. Brazilian football clubs Santos, Corinthians and Cruzeiro are also in the competition.

Financial details of the partnership were not disclosed, however, TRT Gaming will cover all expenses of the Free Fire team, in contrast to its previous partnership with B4. This follows a similar structure to Simplicity Esports’ agreement with Flamengo.

Flamengo Esports’ new partnership was negotiated with the help of Red Button, a talent agency mainly focused on Esports influencers and Youtube channel optimization.

Esports Insider says: Simplicity’s new partnership ensures that Flamengo Esports’ presence in Free Fire is maintained, at least for the foreseeable future. With the organization also being announced as a franchise team in the revamped CBLOL, the Brazilian top division of League of Legends, things are certainly looking up for Flamengo Esports.
