The PMGC 2020 Finals was supposed to be played at the Coca-Cola Arena in Dubai. The tournament had to be moved online, however, after three players tested positive for COVID-19. All players competed in isolation from their hotel rooms. 

The sudden move to an online format caused a lot of connection issues in the PMGC. The tournament had to be delayed by two days as the PUBG Mobile esports team worked to address these issues.
