The biggest tournament of 2021 is finally here.

PUBG Mobile Global Championship 2021 Format

PUBG Mobile held a world tournament every year, and 2021 is not an exception. In PMGC 2021, teams all over the world will compete for the title of World Champion. While there's no announcement regarding how Indian teams will earn their tickets for PMGC 2021, there is more than enough time for them to do that, as BGMI is pretty much identical to PUBG. It'd be much more exciting to see India's top teams perform in Global events.

Similar to PMGC season zero, the tournament will be held in 2 stages: League and Finals. The League play will be held in November and last until December 2021. The Finals will be held on January 2022.

PMGC 2021 schedule - the finals will not actually be played in 2021.

Best teams for all PUBG Mobile Pro League all over the world will participate directly, based on the total points on 2 seasons. This will include both league points and final points. Furthermore, PMPL Regional Championships such as PMPL EMEA and PMPL SEA will serve as a qualifier for PMGC.

BGMI needs to hold tournaments ASAP if they want Indian candidates to participate on the world stage. Teams that didn't participate in PMPL can still get a ticket through Regional Championship. Detailed information of teams and the number of slots will be announced later.

PUBG Mobile Global Championship 2021 Prize Pool

PUBG Mobile Global Championship will have a massive prize pool of $6,000,000 USD. This is the biggest ever prize pool in Mobile Esports History, tripled that of the PMGC Season Zero. This is a larger prize pool than all PUBG Mobile tournaments in 2020 combined (5 million dollars).

PMCO Fall Split 2021 is also coming very soon, with a total prize pool of 2 million USD. It is very likely that India will also have its own version of this tournament.

It hasn’t been confirmed if the upcoming PMGC will be a live event. Apparently, Tencent is trying hard to hold the PMGC 2021 as an offline event, but there was too much uncertainty due to the pandemic to guarantee anything at this point.

They will likely be a lot more careful this year after several players tested positive for COVID-19 during the 2020 finals of the PMGC. It was initially supposed to be held at the Coca-Cola Arena in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates from Jan. 21 to 24, 2021. Just a day before it was supposed to begin, 3 players tested positive... and they have to play from their hotel rooms afterward.
