Tencent has announced the PUBG Mobile World Invitational (PWMI) 2021, a mid-season event for PUBG Mobile that’s going to kick off soon.
The tournament will be held over July 22 and July 25 and comes with a charity prize pool of a whopping $3 million, which’s powered by Gamers without Borders.
The PUBG Mobile World Invitational 2021 has OnePlus as the smartphone partner and NimoTV is the media partner. Besides this, and Gamers without Borders’ involvement in powering the event, Tencent has not revealed any other information about this tournament yet.
The first half of the PUBG Mobile esports schedule for 2021 wrapped up in June and fans have been asking about a midseason event. While chalking out its 2021 roadmap, Tencent had mentioned that they are going to host ‘invitationals’ midseason and this was followed up by the announcement that has just been made regarding the PUBG Mobile World Invitational 2021.
Last year we saw the PUBG Mobile World League (PMWL) being held for Eastern and Western regions over the first and the second half of 2020. The director of PUBG Mobile esports at Tencent, James Yang, had confirmed late last year that PUBG Mobile World League is going to be canceled and will be replaced by invitationals in 2021.
After PUBG Mobile World Invitational 2021, the second half of the PUBG Mobile esports schedule is going to carry on with the PUBG Mobile Club Opens (PMCO). PMCO is going to be held all around the world. These tournaments are going to lead to the PUBG Mobile Pro Leagues (PMPL) and the best teams coming out of that are going to be headed to the PUBG Mobile Global Championship (PMGC) 2021 at the end of the year where a world champion is going to be chosen.
