The second season of the PUBG Mobile Pro League (PMPL) South Asia will kick off on Oct. 15. The top 20 teams from across the South Asian region will compete for a share of the $65,000 prize pool, as well as 16 slots to the PMPL South Asia season two finals. The total prize pool for the season is $200,000.

While it hasn’t been announced yet, the top teams from the finals will likely make it to the PUBG Mobile Global Championship (PMGC) in late November. It has a prize pool of $2 million.

The PMPL South Asia was supposed to kick off last month but was delayed following the ban of PUBG Mobile in India on Sept. 2. The Indian ministry of IT and electronics alleged the game was stealing users’ data in an unauthorized manner to server locations outside India. Following this, Tencent decided to disallow all Indian players from participating in the tournament.

Due to this, 17 teams from the Indian region were disqualified from the Pro League. Two teams have been given back their slots, however, after signing a roster of non-Indian players.

Here is everything you need to know about the PMPL South Asia season two. This information has been collected through PUBG Mobile Esports’ social media handles and Liquipedia.
