Posted by Bryan Terng on May 19, 2021

One of the biggest (current) PUBG Mobile regional tournaments in the world, the PUBG Mobile Professional League Southeast Asia (PMPL SEA) Championship Season 3, is set to fire up the stage this Friday (21 May) with a three-day spectacle that will surely blow everyone's socks off. With so many coverage on the PMPL SEA Championship, we decided to make it easier for you guys and pour every essential detail into one single piece.

Here's all the info you need to know about PMPL SEA Championship Season 3:

Not the Finals just yet

We've been so accustomed to calling it the PMPL SEA Finals for the past two seasons. But, things are a little different this round - it's been officially revealed that the spring split of the regional competition will instead be dubbed as the PMPL SEA Championship, following the change in format for PUBG Mobile esports this year.

Plus, since the international PUBG Mobile Global Championship (PMGC) is now a single year-end event, the top teams of PMPL SEA Championship Season 3 won't qualify for PMGC 2021. They'd have to repeat their success in the next PMPL SEA Finals Season 4 to represent their countries on the world stage. However, the top 2 teams of PMPL SEA Championship Season 3 will immediately advance to the next PMPL SEA Leagues Season 4.
