Neither regional online leagues (for example, PCL - a major PUBG franchise league from Tencent - analogue of PCS) nor LAN tournaments will be allowed in the country.

PlayerIGN also suggested that the transfer of the PUBG Global Championship 2021 venue from China to South Korea is related to this news. As a reminder, all of these restrictions are since PUBG: Battlegrounds is not an officially approved game in China.
