Tencent has big plans for PUBG Mobile eSports this Summer, including the Club Open Global Finals.
It can all get a bit confusing with so many different events going on around the same time but fans today found out some exciting news.
The PUBG Mobile Club Open Global Finals has found its Team Up roster for the big eSports event.
And what’s more, millions of fans voted from the selection available to decide who would make the cut.

The Club Open Global Finals action kicks off on Friday, July 26, when all nine stars will team up to form the ultimate squad.
This will include a show match, with International musician Alan Walker also joining for both the show match and an exclusive live performance.
The good news is that players will be able to tune in for the official live broadcast of the finals on the PUBG MOBILE Esports YouTube channel.
“The TEAM UP campaign makes up just one part of the massive three-day PUBG MOBILE Club Open 2019 Global Finals, where the top 16 teams from around the world will duke it out for ultimate bragging rights and a healthy slice of the massive $2.5 million USD prize pool,” a message from Tencent reads.
“Over 90% of all on-site tickets are sold out, but players can still purchase the last remaining tickets.
“In addition to last week’s TEAM UP voting period, players can support their favourite of the top nine TEAM UP superstars to earn exclusive PUBG MOBILE rewards, including a customised PMCO in-game parachute, and the chance of lucky draw with exclusive giveaways provided by the nine stars and ALAN WALKER.
“From Thursday, July 18 to Thursday, July 25, special PUBG MOBILE missions are available each day, which will reward players with up to four voting tickets per day. For each vote, players will receive a TEAM UP Crate via in-game mail.”
And as mentioned above, this is just part of Tencent’s eSports plans for PUBG Mobile in 2019, with plenty more being worked on.
“We’re setting 2019 up to be the year of PUBG MOBLE,” said Vincent Wang, General Manager of Global Publishing Department, Tencent Games.

We also announced our ambitious and exciting esports plan for the year, which will involve tens of thousands of teams and an astonishing $2.5 million in prize funds.
“It’s a big step in our development of an esports ecosystem for PUBG MOBILE, which will lead the world in popularising mobile game tournaments.”
