WHAT. A. NIGHT.— PUBG Esports (@PUBGEsports) November 18, 2019
We'd like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for watching the #PGC19 Semifinals! We'll see you starting this Saturday for the Grand Finals! And if you're in the area, we'll see you at the Oakland Arena for more action!💥
Sixteen teams are now locked in for the PUBG Global Championship Grand Finals on 23-24th November, looking to win the top prize of $1,000,000 and become the game's world champion.
In the Elimination Stage, big names including G2 Esports and Team Liquid were unable to progress further in the tournament. G2 did not secure a single top four placement and a single win in Round 3 wasn't enough to see Liquid through as they finished outside of the top ten four times.
European teams Natus Vincere and Team SoloMid are joined by third EU hopeful FaZe Clan following a narrow comeback that saw the team secure their place at the Oakland Arena this weekend.

They will be competing in a gruelling 12 rounds of battle royale action with placing and kills earning points every time. Consistent top placings will see the best team win the title.
While revenue-share items were cancelled by PUBG Corp. following concerns surroudning the 'inability to ensure a high enough quality' for team-branded cosmetics, PGC sets based on the event itself were released in their place and teams are awarded a share of the profts based on a fan pick'em vote.
The conclusion of the PUBG Global Championship will be broadcast live on the official playBATTLEGROUNDS Twitch channel.
