PUBG Esports 2021: Europe

With health and safety at the top of our priority list last year, we took a step in a new direction by transitioning to online play and the PUBG Continental Series. Although PCS was a fresh experience, a few things felt familiar—PUBG fans around the world brought their same unparalleled passion to every tournament, and Europe’s top teams thrilled us with some more unforgettable highlights. 

We learned a lot, and we’re carrying this knowledge into 2021 with a plan that strengthens and develops last year’s efforts. 

The Road to PGC

We’re lining up a total of four premier esports events in 2021. The PUBG Global Invitational.S has already kicked off in South Korea, where seven squads from Europe will bring the heat over the next eight weeks. 

After that marathon of esports action, you’ll have to catch your breath quickly, as we prepare for PCS4 in June and PCS5 in September. Marking the end of the year in style, the 2021 season will conclude at the PUBG Global Championship (PGC) this November

PUBG Continental Series Europe 2021

Much like their predecessors, PCS4 and PCS5 are online tournaments that take place across four different global regions: Europe, Asia, Asia-Pacific, and the Americas.

Once again in Europe, all competitors—regardless of their skill level and experience—will be able to battle their way to the main events via Open Qualifiers. However, there are a few changes that will keep the competition intense every step of the way. 

We’re replacing Group Stage events with individual Europe West, Europe East, and Middle East & Africa (MEA) Finals. This means that teams who progress through the open qualification gauntlet will battle against teams from their home region for a direct seed into the Grand Finals. 

Stay tuned for more information, including how to participate, prize money, and seeding in the coming weeks.

Third-Party Events

Just like last year, we’ll be supporting third-party events throughout 2021. We’re looking forward to a stacked calendar featuring tournaments of all sizes, including two major events in Europe taking place between PUBG’s own competitions. 

Some of these third-party tournaments will also feed directly into Europe’s PCS events—more details to come on that soon!

PGC 2021

The PUBG Global Championship is the place to celebrate the best of the best.

As teams participate in tournaments throughout the year, they will accumulate points based on their performance. Places at PGC 2021 will be awarded to the squads who earn the most points, where they’ll do battle with other high-performing teams from around the world for a shot at the ultimate chicken dinner.

PUBG is proud to have some of the greatest fans and teams in esports, and we thank you for your tremendous support.
