The 64 teams will be divided into four groups of 16 teams each. They will play three matches on Erangel, Miramar, and Vikendi during the group stage on Aug. 16 and 17. The top four teams from each group will move on to the finals from Aug. 21 to 23 at the True Digital Park where six matches will be played. 

For the online stages, all players will have to download an application from Tencent which will be able to record “audio, images, games, and other information.” This will be used to confirm the identity of the participating players. 

The top three teams from the finals will move on to the PMPL Ladies SEA. Additionally, one more team featuring the four most popular players will be selected for the international competition. These four players will be decided by voting on the PUBG Mobile Esports Facebook page.  

The PMPL Ladies SEA will likely feature teams from Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand, and Indonesia. PUBG Mobile Esports has already unveiled season two of the PMPL Ladies for Indonesia which has a similar format to Thailand’s pro league. The remaining countries should announce their own ladies’ tournament soon. 

The PMPL Ladies SEA will be the first international PUBG Mobile esports competition that had open qualifiers exclusively for female players.
