PUBG Mobile Pro League Adds Seven New Regions & World Tournament

Krafton and Tencent Games announced new changes to the PUBG Mobile Pro League (PMPL) 2021 schedule with some major additions. The PMPL has mainly been located in the APAC region of the world since that's primarily where PUBG Mobile has remained heavily popular over the years. But the league recognizes the need for expansion as new areas have seen an uptake, so seven new regions have been brought into the fold for players to compete in. The seven new regions are North America, Brazil, LATAM, CIS, Turkey, Arabia, and Western Europe. Those seven new regions have been incorporated into the new schedule, which we have details on below. The organizers also teased a World-Class tournament for this Summer, which will put the top teams from across all regions against each other, but no further details were released at this time.
