With an action-packed year already behind us, the biggest event on the PUBG esports calendar now takes center stage. In case you missed it last week (we get it — we were watching PEL Promo as well), here’s what you need to know about the PUBG Global Championship.
What is the PUBG Global Championship?
The PUBG Global Championship (PGC) welcomes the best pro teams in the world to the ultimate battle royale. Beginning November 8, PGC will take over California, USA for almost three weeks! It all starts in Los Angeles, where 32 teams will be put to the test on their way to the Grand Finals in Oakland from November 23-24. With a first-place prize of $1,000,000 USD — and a total base prize pool of $2 million — there’s everything to play for.
Representing PEL, FaZe Clan, Team Liquid, Natus Vincere, TSM, G2 Esports, and CrowCrowd will make the journey to California following strong performances in Phase 2 and 3. You can find out more about how they qualified for the tournament here.

Can I get involved?
Starting November 5, players will be able to purchase several PGC-themed event skins — including in-game clothing, a Dacia skin, and a sweet new look for the M416.
Additionally, with the purchase of any PGC item, fans will receive the opportunity to participate in the ‘PGC Pick’Em Challenge’ Event, where they’ll be able to predict the competition’s winning team. If guessed correctly, participants will receive exclusive PGC rewards! Stay tuned for more details on the challenge.
As well as helping you look the part, each item sale will also support competing teams. With 25% of each purchase being added to the competition prize pool, and an additional 25% allocated to teams via the PGC Pick’Em Challenge, fans will contribute directly to the overall tournament winnings.
