It seems like Tencent Games and Nodwin Gaming are collaborating to bring a PUBG Mobile Esports Circuit in South Asia for 2020. The league would use the already present tournaments as part of it. This means official PMCO and PMPL events for some regions would be a part of it. Both PUBG Mobile Pro League (PMPL) and PUBG Mobile Club Open have been considered entry tournaments for the PUBG Mobile World League (PWPL).
PMCO Spring Split India which took place in June 2019 saw Nodwin Gaming collaborate with PUBG Mobile. This was followed by PMCO Fall Split South Asia in October 2019. In 2020, Nodwin didn’t get involved for the online qualifiers for PUBG Mobile Club Open 2020 Spring Split for India, Pakistan, South Asia and wildcard regions. Nodwin now plans to provide match hosting, broadcasting, player and talent management, league operations and overall event management.
“For us at NODWIN Gaming, 2019 was the building block towards redefining esports with PUBG Mobile. The PMCOs laid the foundation for a bigger vision. Our association with PUBG MOBILE in 2020 means we got to execute that vision in our style. The introduction of Pro League has made the entire league structure more robust and engaging. The community is excited and so are we. Filled arenas with high decibel chantings incoming!”, said Akshat Rathee, MD & Founder, Nodwin Gaming.
