Teams can begin signing up for the event on March 8 before registration closes on March 18. To be eligible to participate, players need to be at least 16 years old and must have held the rank of Platinum or higher at the end of the prior season. At least three players on each team need to be from the countries they are attempting to represent in the PMCO 2019 throughout the year.

With the reveal of the PMCO 2019, Tencent and PUBG Corp. have taken the next steps to ensure that PUBG remains a strong mobile esport.
