PUBG Global Series 1 Esports Tournament Kicks Off In Malaysia This Week

Participants will compete for a $500,000 prize pool and a place at the Global Championship 2023

South Korean video game developer Krafton will hold the first PUBG Global Series 1 (PGS 1) event in Malaysia, which will take place at the Sunway Pyramid Convention Centre in Kuala Lumpur from April 27th to May 7th.

The event will feature 24 top teams from around the world including 8 Global Partner Teams and 16 teams that have qualified through regional tournaments to compete for a prize pool of $500,000.

Participants will compete for not only the $half-a-million prize pool but also to take home PGS Points that are required to secure a place at PUBG Global Championship 2023.

Unlike the PUBG Continental Series held online in four different regions worldwide last year, PGS 1 will be held offline at the Battle Arena Malaysia.

Tournament structure

PGS 1 will begin on April 27th with 24 teams divided into three groups of eight. After the group stage, the top 16 teams will move to the Winners Bracket and the bottom eight teams will go to the Losers Bracket.

The Grand Finals will be held from May 5th to 7th with a total of 18 matches. The new PGS Points system will award the top 16 teams points based on their final rankings, with the top four teams securing a spot in the PUBG Global Championship 2023.

FaZe Clan, Natus Vincere, Twisted Minds, HOWL and Acend Club are among the teams participating. And in celebration of the PGS 1 event, FaZe Clan, 17Gaming, Natus Vincere, and Petrichor Road will showcase their Team Edition items which are available for purchase in-game until 6 AM CEST on May 10th.

All matches of PGS 1 will commence at 12:00 CEST and can be followed live on the official PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS Twitch and PUBG: Esports YouTube channels.
