PMPL hosted a one-time-only qualifier earlier this year with athletes from Mongolia, Sri Lanka, and Nepal vying for a spot in the championship. Teams invited to the qualifier event of PMPL included lower-seeded PMPL teams along with top teams from PUBG MOBILE competitions in 2021 and PMPL 2021. After intense competition, 1 Mongolian team qualified and claimed a spot alongside 3 direct invites based on performance during last season. This brought the total count of Mongolian teams to 4 out of the 20 spots for this year’s edition of PMPL South Asia. The 4 Mongolian Teams who will compete at PMPL South Asia 2022 will be STALWART ESPORTS, SEAL ESPORTS, IHC ESPORTS, and SAVAGE ESPORTS.

Esports has seen exponential growth in Mongolia and South Asia with more players joining the fold every day. PUBG MOBILE is one of Mongolia’s largest Esports titles and key Esports drivers. The game demands a significant amount of teamwork, hand-eye coordination, and strategic thinking. Teams must balance survival, battle tactics and leverage one another’s strengths while covering up weaknesses to progress through to the top. PUBG MOBILE has seen significant growth in Asia and has even been selected as an Esports Medal Event at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games.
Tencent’s PUBG MOBILE Esports also aims to strengthen the Esports ecosystems of its regions. As a result, PMPL will run on an annual cycle to enhance the experience and stability of the sport’s competitive environment. PUBG MOBILE Esports has also expanded regional activity with the launch of PMPL Pakistan and PMPL Africa laying the road for the development of stronger amateur circuits. With this in mind the PUBG MOBILE Club Open has also shifted to a regional amateur and semi-pro tournament contrary to its previous position as a direct “gateway to PMPL”. Instead, moving forward the PMNC and Regional Cup will open gatesfor PMPL, along with a range of local and regional PUBG MOBILE Esports authorized eventsto rack up points for spots in these two tournaments.
PMPL is the summit of Esports discipline where players will compete with the best in the region, showcasing their skills and talent on the path to dawning new champions. The tournament will be broadcast across all competing regions in South Asia: Mongolia, Nepal and Sri Lanka – giving the athletes a truly international platform to shine.
