The PUBG Mobile Global Championship is one of the highlighted annual events conducted that always garners the attention of fans and users of the game.
The whole prize pool associated with the event is set to be $3 million. Tencent first said that 51 teams from all around the world would be chosen for this significant occasion.
The corporation then announced that, instead of 51 squads, 50 will compete in this tournament.
The PMGC, the fourth version of the Global Championship, will take place in 2023 and be split into two halves.
This competition’s League Stage, with 48 teams, will begin on the 2nd of November and conclude on the 26th of November.
India Does Not Receive Spot In PMGC 2023
India failed to get an invitation to participate the second time, despite the great optimism for Indian teams to take part in this edition.
The final two spots are taken by DRS Gaming representing Nepal and Gaimin Gladiators.
Given India’s prior involvement in the PMGC 2021 by participating in the BGMI Series, whereby Godlike Esports played, fans anxiously anticipated the presence of Indian teams.
Nevertheless, in spite of expectations, India was not invited to PMGC 2023 this time around.
Teams from India have been suspended from competing in the game’s worldwide arena as a result of the national PUBG Mobile ban.
