– 3rd Place Squad: $100,000 USD to donate to charity of 3rd place winner’s choice

The event will be taking place at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Berlin, Germany while the PUBG Global Invitational 2018 (PGI 2018) is on. The event will begin at 7.30 PM in the evening on July 27. Attendees that have tickets to the PGI can witness these games first-hand at the venue.

There will be four first-person perspective matches that will be held, with teams of four. Each team will have two popular streamers along with two pros who will take part in the matches. All this action can be caught live on Twitch on the official PUBG channel for those that can’t be at the venue itself.
