After their disqualification, all points they earned in the weeks leading to day 3 and 4 of the Week 4 have been discarded and they stand on the 24th place with 0 points.

As far as the Dubai finals is concerned, the qualified squads will now fight for the title of world champions and a prize pool of $1.3 million.

A video announcing PMGC Finals details showed Coca-Cola Arena in the end, and is likely to be the official venue for the LAN event. The arena has a capacity of 17,000 people.

Dubai has had a history of holding PUBGM events earlier as well. The first international eSports event in Dubai was PUBG Mobile Star Challenge (PMSC) 2018.
