Group stage, semi-finals, finals (February - March)
Just like the previous year's Spring Split, a total of 32 teams will battle in the group stage, and the top 24 teams in the points table will proceed to the regional semi-finals. The top 16 teams from the regional semi-finals will earn a ticket to the regional finals. The teams which qualify for the PMCO Spring Split Regional Finals 2020 will be invited directly to the next split group stage, without having to pass online qualification again.
PMPL 2020 (March - April)
There is one more regional stage added before the teams go to the global stage, i.e. PUBG Mobile Pro League (PMPL) 2020. PMPL will be played in two regions only, i.e. South Asia and the Americas.
In PMPL South Asia 2020, the top teams from India, Pakistan and South Asia Regional Finals will battle against each other, and the top teams will then proceed to the global event, i.e. PUBG Mobile World League 2020.
Similarly in PMPL Americas, the teams from Latin America, North America, Brazil will compete for their berth in PMWL 2020. The teams from the other regions will qualify directly for PMWL 2020 without any Pro League.
PMWL 2020 Season 1 (May - June)
PMCO Global Finals are replaced by PUBG Mobile World League 2020 and the teams from all the regions qualified will battle for the ultimate title and a massive prize pool of $1,000,000.
PMWL 2020 Season 1 will further set the stage for PUBG Mobile World Championship 2020 that was announced by James Yang, Director of PUBG Mobile Global Esports during PMCO Fall Split Global Finals 2019. The further details of the PUBG Mobile World Championship are yet to be released.
The PMCO Spring Split 2020 is divided into six stages which will be played for over five months. James Yang, Director of PUBG Mobile Global Esports also announced that the PUBG Esports 2020 would have a massive prize pool of $5,000,000.
