The PUBG Global Championship brings together the best teams from PUBG Esports leagues around the world. These include the PUBG Korea League (PKL), North American National PUBG League (NPL), PUBG Europe League (PEL), and the Chinese PUBG Champions League (PCL), among others. The Group Stage features 32 teams, with the bottom eight being eliminated over the course of three days. The Semifinal Stage, meanwhile, features the remaining 24 teams, before eight of them are knocked out. The Grand Finals feature the remaining 16 teams battling it out at the Oakland Arena for two days of competition, six matches each day, before one team walks away as the 2019 PUBG Global Champion.

As of this writing, a total of 23 out of 32 teams have been confirmed. Teams include T1, FaZe Clan, Liquid, Natus Vincere, and Team SoloMid.

The tournament isn't just about the team, as beginning November 5, fans are going to be able to gear up and celebrate the tournament by purchasing an exciting range of exclusive in-game items. In particular, 25% of net proceeds from total item sales will be added to the overall PGC prize pool of $2 million.

An additional 25% of item sale revenue is going to be awarded to participating teams via the tournament ‘Pick’Em Challenge’ Event.
