2023 PUBG MOBILE GLOBAL CHAMPIONSHIP RETURNS TO CROWN THE WORLD’S BEST TEAM
PUBG MOBILE Esports is excited to announce the crown jewel of the 2023 PUBG MOBILE Esports calendar, with the return of the PUBG MOBILE Global Championship (PMGC) for 2023! This tournament is the culmination of every battle, every challenge, and every triumph seen throughout this year’s PUBG MOBILE Esports scene. 50 teams from around the world will prove their worth from November 2nd – December 10th, as they battle it out for their share of the $3 million prize pool and the title of PUBG MOBILE World Champion.
The 2023 PMGC League will take place in several stages through November, from November 2nd – November 26th. Participating teams will consist of qualifiers from various PUBG MOBILE Pro League (PMPL) and PUBG MOBILE Super League (PMSL) regions, and special invites. Fans can experience 6 exciting matches per day with 48 teams going head-to-head to secure their place in the 2023 PMGC Grand Finals.
Only the best of the best will advance to the 2023 PMGC Grand Finals to compete for the PUBG MOBILE World Champion title. From December 8th – December 10th, the 14 teams qualifying from the 2023 PMGC League and 2 special invite teams will take to the stage in Istanbul, Türkiye, for the opportunity to prove themselves the best PUBG MOBILE team on the planet.
It has been a thrilling year for PUBG MOBILE Esports, and fans will no doubt be looking to Vampire Esports for another fantastic performance. The team earned their second consecutive PUBG MOBILE World Invitational win this year, alongside their victory at the 2023 PUBG MOBILE Pro League in Thailand.
