Sixteen teams will compete as Dubai hosts the PUBG MOBILE Global Championship (PMGC) finals from January 21 to 24. The teams from around the world will fight for their share of PMGC total prize pool — $2 million — the biggest in PUBG MOBILE esports history for a single tournament.

The finals can be viewed on the PUBG MOBILE Esports YouTube, Facebook and Twitch channels.

The tournament is supported by the Dubai Sports Council and the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (Dubai Tourism).

PMGC League concluded with a ‘super weekend’ on December 20, 2020, pitting 24 teams from various tournaments against each other across 60 matches.

The top 16 punched their tickets to Dubai, with Four Angry Men coming in the first place, followed by Bigetron Red Aliens in the second and RRQ Athena, third.

The finals will be held offline without audiences. All 16 teams will be competing on-site with the ‘fair gameplay’ environment and safety.

James Yang, Director of PUBG MOBILE Global Esports, said: “The year 2020 has seen us announce the biggest prize pool in PUBG MOBILE history; it has seen our fans break viewership records; and is now coming to a close with the very best 16 teams from across the world making history in Dubai.

“This is a testament to all we can continue to achieve, now and in the future.”
