The following was sent as a press release to Inven Global.
Ahead of this weekend’s 2023 PUBG MOBILE Global Championship Grand Finals, PUBG MOBILE Esports is excited to reveal a series of updates coming to the PUBG MOBILE esports ecosystem in 2024, including a brand new global tournament, huge changes to the regional competitions, and much more.
In a press conference today, James Yang, Senior Director of PUBG MOBILE Global Esports, shared what’s coming up for mobile gaming’s biggest esport. Affecting all regions across all levels of competition, these changes will make 2024 PUBG MOBILE Esports’ biggest and most exciting year yet.
At the highest tier of PUBG MOBILE Esports competition are the two existing flagship events, the PUBG MOBILE Global Championship (PMGC) and the new and improved midseason tournament, which will take place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and serve as the next exciting chapter of the PMWI. These will be joined by a new third global event, the PUBG MOBILE Global Open. Set to take place in Brazil throughout March and April next year, the tournament will feature a $500,000 prize pool! Invited to the inaugural PMGO will be the host region qualifier, regional PMSL qualifiers, and PMSL partnership teams, bringing an even bigger platform for players to put on world-class performances.
In the second tier of the ecosystem, the PUBG MOBILE Super League (PMSL) is expanding into four regions, growing from just Southeast Asia into the global system for regional pro competition. PMSL will replace PMPL in all regions and become the highest regional level of competition in PUBG MOBILE Esports, with exciting offline events planned for each league.
Southeast Asia will have three seasons of PMSL for 2024, whereas EMEA (now a single league), the Americas, and Central & South Asia will have two each.
The third tier will feature PMSL regional qualifiers, connecting amateur and semi-professional prospects with professional players, bringing them the chance to progress and qualify upward. The fourth and final tier will include smaller regional leagues and tournaments, such as the PUBG Mobile Club Open (PMCO).
Before next year’s changes are put in motion, the Grand Finals of the 2023 PUBG MOBILE Global Championship are set to take place this weekend!
