Increasing opportunities for pro players
PMSL SEA will begin with the spring season in March and the fall season in August, bringing together the top pro teams in each region and increasing opportunities for pro players while offering fans more fantastic action. Teams that partner with the PMSL will grow together as official partners of PUBG Mobile, increasing their exposure to fans and building their competitive performance. The league partnership also includes guaranteed slots in the respective PMPL and PMSL regions of each team.
The PMSL SEA will substitute for the PMPL SEA championship and become the top layer of the PMPL, and the top teams of the PMPL will be promoted to the PMSL, playing in both the PMPL and the PMSL. All teams in the Partnership Program will have a fixed slot in PMSL, regardless of their PMPL placement. Each year, there will be two seasons, one in the spring and one in the fall, and the top teams, based on their performance in both seasons of the PMPL and PMSL, will advance to the PMGC.
Southeast Asia was the first region to host PMPL, and it has a rich history of esports popularity. Nearly two-thirds of gamers in Greater Southeast Asia engage in esports. The PML-SEA will build on this popularity and provide more opportunities for professional players. The PUBG MOBILE Partnership Program will enhance the esports ecosystem of each region, taking PUBG MOBILE Esports to the next level thanks to the close collaboration between partner teams, PUBG MOBILE, and league partners.
An Exciting New Era in PUBG Mobile Esports
“The launch of the Partnership Program marks the beginning of an exciting new era in PUBG Mobile Esports,” exclaimed James Yang, Director of PUBG Mobile Global Esports. He expressed his enthusiasm for the amazing teams worldwide that have contributed to the success of PUBG Mobile and the opportunity to work even more closely with them. Yang further explained that the Partnership Program and PMSL will result in an enhanced experience for teams, players, and fans as the opportunities provided by pro teams continue to grow.
PMPL SEA is ongoing, and fans will not have to wait long for more action.
