3 North American teams would divide $150,000 and 3 spots in Berlin
Every North American team should be excited and ready for a chance to win a spot in the upcoming PGI NA qualifiers:
A few weeks ago, we announced PUBG Global Invitational 2018 (PGI 2018), a global esports tournament that will pit 20 teams against each other in a contest for $2 million—and the ultimate PUBG bragging rights.
Today, we’re excited to tell you about another tournament, the PGI North America Qualifier. Beginning May 24th, 320 teams from North America (United States, Canada, and Mexico) will battle to become one of the three teams to represent NA at PGI 2018. The NA PGI Qualifier has its own prize pool as well, splitting $150,000 between the top 20 teams.
