A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) has been sparked between the Government of Uttar Pradesh and Garena, the game company of the Battle Royale game Free Fire, to encourage esports in the state. This significant MOU was signed on July 28, 2023, in the K. D. Singh Babu Stadium in Lucknow in front of all interested parties. The collaboration follows Uttar Pradesh's status as India's first state to include esports in its sports strategy in March 2023. As a supplement to the general growth of sports and the promotion of the digital sector, the state seeks to engage youth and promote the esports and games business in the state as well as in India.

By utilizing Yotta's regional data center infrastructure, which provides hyperscale tier IV Data center solutions in India, Garena, and the Uttar Pradesh government seek to advance esports in the state. The goal of this alliance is to put Uttar Pradesh at the forefront of esports. In India, esports is becoming increasingly well-known. Bihar and Madhya Pradesh are two more states that have formally legalized esports. Now that the Uttar Pradesh government has signed an MOU with Garena, esports is probably going to gain more traction in the nation.

With Garena attempting to establish a foothold in the nation in order to impress the Indian authorities, the Free Fire community in India is eagerly awaiting the next steps. There are now no noteworthy points to ponder, but we may expect a few more in the next weeks and months. So, that's everything about the collaboration and the most recent advancements with Free Fire Unban.
