The regions will be Europe, Asia, North America, South America, Japan/Korea, and China. The top 20 teams from each of these six regions will go through to the qualifier rounds, with the finals set to take place in Dubai later this year.

Applications to take part have sadly closed, but it was specified that applicants had to either enter as a team of three, or they could opt to enter by themselves but only if they had over 1,000 fans or followers across streaming platforms.

Regional and global winners will split the $600,000 as follows:

· Global Final Champion: $200,000 USD
· Runner-up: $100,000 USD
· 3rd Place: $50,000 USD
· Regional Final Champion: $20,000 USD
· Regional Runner-up: $15,000 USD
· 3rd Place: $10,000 USD

But that’s not all. In addition to the cash, winners will also become official PUBG MOBILE partnered content creators. Long story short, they'll be given access to promotional material that could aid them in streaming PUBG Mobile.
