Today we’re excited to to officially announce that professional leagues are coming to PUBG! The National PUBG League (NPL) in North America and the PUBG Europe League (PEL) in Europe are pro-level competitions for the 2019 season, and are the first major steps in our announced 5-year esports plan. These leagues will be part of a global league structure that begins in January, where teams will compete locally in a three-phase system to win prize money and qualify for global tournaments and championships. Teams in North America will compete for a regional annual prize pool of $1 million while European teams will have an annual prize pool of €1 million.
Matches played in these leagues will place 16 squads on Erangel and Miramar in first-person perspective only. OGN and StarLadder will be our partners for the NPL and PEL respectively and all participating teams will have travel and housing subsidized.
We’re excited to officially kick off the inaugural season this January and will be sharing more information about these leagues at a later date. PEL registrations are open now (NPL registrations coming soon), so if you think your squad has what it takes, head over to http://pubgesports.eu to register!
