A gaming league in the Philippines has launched its first PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) Mobile tournament with the PUBG Mobile Philippines National Championship (PPNC), which opened registration last Aug. 3.

The Philippine Pro Gaming League (PPGL), an amateur and professional e-sports league, organized the event in partnership with Tencent. It will have a championship prize of P430,000.

The top four teams will represent the Philippines in the Regional Finals of PUBG Mobile Club Open Fall Split 2020: SEA Wildcard.

“This marks the first time in PPGL history that the league will be holding a tournament for one of the most popular mobile shooting games in the country,” the gaming league said in a statement on Friday.


The PPNC will be an all-online tournament wherein teams will be playing “from the comforts and safety of their homes,” the statement said.

Qualifying rounds will be from Aug. 11 to 14, which will be followed by a race to the Top 16 from Aug. 19 to 20. The grand finals will be held on Sept. 2 to 3.

Interested participants may register by clicking here, while non-players and fans may watch the tournament on the following Facebook pages: the PPGL Facebook page, and the grand finals on both PPGL (Tagalog), and PUBG Mobile Esports (English) Facebook pages.

The live broadcast will also feature Ben&Ben, a popular OPM band.
