50% of PGC 2019 item revenue will be shared among participating teams via two distribution methods. 25% will go directly into the PGC prize pool, in addition to the already announced $2 million sum. The other 25% will be shared with teams through the Pick’Em Challenge Event, where team’s individual share will be determined based on the total number of Pick’Em votes for each team.
The 32 teams competing in the PUBG Global Championship event are the best from each of PUBG’s nine competitive regions and have earned their places in the championship tournament after a full season of aggressive play, strategic survival and plenty of Chicken Dinners.
The Group Stage includes three days of competition where pre-drawn groups of 16 will compete over the first two days while the third day will see teams from the bottom halves of the first two days competing in an Elimination Group. The top eight teams from the Elimination Group join the other top teams in the Semifinals. The Semifinals will split the 24 remaining teams into three groups of eight and then matched against each other over three days.
The top 16 teams from the Semifinals advance to the Grand Finals where they’ll play 12 total matches over two days. When the dust clears one team will have earned the crown and stand as the undisputed champions of PUBG Esports.
