Ready to be the best? PUBG

PUBG Mobile has officially launched its 2020 official esports program as registration for the PUBG Mobile Club Open 2020 (PMCO 2020) is now open to all players worldwide. Whether amateur, semi-pro, or professional, players can test their skills and battle their way towards the World Championship. The year-round esports tournament includes a total prize pool of $5 million, which is double what was offered last year.

Starting January 3 until January 21, players can register for the PMCO 2020 Spring Split competition through the PUBG Mobile Club Open official website. Then, beginning on January 23 and running to February 2, teams that registered compete in online qualification matches. Winning teams qualify to move on in the tournament.

Revamped 2020 Esports Structure

As announced last year, PUBG Mobile will complete the structure of its global esports ecosystem by supporting amateurs, semipros, and professionals, along with country, regional, and world level competitions this year. The tournaments start with the PMCO, which is open to all players. The PMCO features additional competing chances for all skill levels from different countries and regions. Following the PMCO is the Pro- and World Leagues for professional players. In addition, the best teams that come out of the different PMCOs get the chance to qualify for the Pro-Leagues (PMPL) and World Leagues (PMWL).

The Pro-Leagues feature selected countries and regions, including Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and Chinese Taipei, as well as South Asia and the Americas. The Pro-Leagues eventually culminate in the World Leagues, which are scheduled for May and October. Here, the top pro teams from around the world convene to represent their respective regions. The best qualified teams then move on to compete in the World Championship in December for the highest honor and a large chunk of the $5 million prize pool.

More Chances for New Teams

Last year, millions of viewers around the world watched at least 50,000 teams fight it out in the PMCO 2019 throughout the Spring and Fall Splits. The tournament ended with more than 532 million total views tuned in the official livestream and 57 million total hours watched. It's worth noting that these figures exclude Chinese fans.

For this year, more countries are going to be part of the PMCO. This means more entry opportunities for new teams to start their esports path in order to become the best of the best.
