PUBG Mobile Global Championship, aka PMGC, Season Zero is all set to commence. The League Stage of the tournament will go on for four weeks starting from 24th November and will end on 20th December 2020.

The event will take place online due to the current COVID 19 pandemic. The PMGC features an overall prize pool of $2,000,000 USD. Also, the League Stage of the tournament will offer a prize pool of $769,000 USD, while the League finals will feature the remaining $1,231,000 USD.

Due to the ban of the game in India, unfortunately, Indian teams won't be able to participate in the tournament. It would be interesting to see how much viewership the tournament gains with the absence of the Indian team.

Invitational slot: Elites Team United (UAE, MEA)

The 24th team was announced yesterday in a post by PUBG Mobile Esports. The slot went to UAE-based team Elites United Team. Earlier, according to a press release by the officials, the 24th slot was reserved for the host country, which in this case was Dubai.

The Elites United Team were the Semi-Finalists in this year's PUBG Mobile Club Open Fall Split: MEA. The team was placed 23rd in the competition. It would be interesting to see how the team will fare against the world-class teams in the Global Championship.

The PUBG Mobile Global Championship format is almost the same as that of the PUBG Mobile World League S0, which took place earlier this year. The only difference is that there will be no opening weekend to decide the group seedings in the World League. Instead, PUBG Mobile had already announced the group seedings for the tournament.

Another change that was announced through the video was the increase in the number of teams from 20 to 24, keeping in mind the online nature of the regional qualifiers and the players' overall performance. Sixteen from these 24 teams will be playing the finals, and the team with the highest points will be crowned as the PUBG Mobile Global Championship winner.
