Posted by Bryan Terng on July 12, 2021

Global PUBG Mobile esports events have always been held to determine who's the best of the best across the planet, but the upcoming PUBG Mobile World Invitational (PMWI 2021) is going to be a little different than the usual offering - with a US$3 million prize pool, all in the name of charity.

Here are the staggering list of 32 top-tier teams battling in PMWI 2021:


Geek Fam (Malaysia
Bigetron RA (Indonesia)
Blacklist International (Philippines)
Valdus Esports (Thailand)
D'Xavier (Vietnam)
A1 Esports (Bangladesh)
DRS Gaming (Nepal)
DSGaming (South Korea)
Fanatic Zombies (United Arab Emirates)
Nasr Esports (Jordan)
Natus Vincere (Russia)
Reject (Japan)
Stalwart Esports (Pakistan)
Team Myths (Algeria)
Yalla Esports (Saudi Arabia)
Zeus Esports (Mongolia)


19Esports (Canada)
Alpha7 Esports (Brazil)
Chivas Esports (Mexico)
Destiny (Germany)
Ghost Gaming (United States of America)
Godsent (Ukraine)
Gunz Esport (Iraq)
Konina Power (Kazakhstan)
Lakonostra MVP (United Kingdom)
Next Rūya Gaming (Turkey)
Qlash (France)
Ra’ad (Iraq)
RTG Esports (Morocco)
Team Onyx (Georgia)
Team Queso (Argentina)
UDR Killers (Spain)

As you can already tell, PMWI 2021 will be split into two divisions, East and West, with 16 teams competing in each - it brings to mind last year's PUBG Mobile World League (PMWL 2020), due to it adopting an online-only format. Otherwise, everything else is pretty much standard, with the three-day tournament hosting five matches a day, rotating three maps: classic Erangel, sandy Miramar and tropical paradise Sanhok.

Since PMWI 2021 is a charity event that sees Tencent Games working with Gamers Without Borders, a majority of the US$3 million prize pool will be donated to charity, with every team being rewarded US$5,000 for their participation, regardless of their final placements. Nevertheless, it's always fun to see PUBG Mobile teams duking it out with each other on an international scale.

PMWI 2021 will run from 22 - 25 July, with PMWI East and West starting at 6PM and 10.30PM (GMT +8), respectively, daily. You can catch the action on Facebook, YouTube, Twitch and Nimo TV.
