A prize pool of $150,000 and more is on the line

The PMPL SEA Championship has a total prize pool of $150,000, with the winner walking away with $30,000. Besides the huge prize money, the winner of the championship will likely qualify for the PUBG Mobile World Invitational (PMWI). 

The PMWI was announced by Tencent last month, but no details regarding it have been shared yet. Tencent had confirmed, however, that the winner of the Peacekeeper Elite League, the top-level of competitive PUBG Mobile in China, will qualify for the event. It’s likely that the Championship will follow a similar format.
