The PMGC Finals is scheduled to start from today, January 21, 2021, live from Dubai. The teams would play in a closed stadium. However, bad news is coming in from the camps as three players tested positive for Covid-19. PUBG Mobile made an announcement regarding the whole situation and said the players are under self-quarantine, along with people who have come in contact with them, and tests are being regularly administered on them.
PUBG Mobile’s Director Global Esports, James Yang, addressed a press conference today said that all teams will now play in isolation on a set network instead of playing from the venue. PUBG Mobile officials have taken plan B into action so that no one else gets affected with the virus. The players’ identity or their team names have not been revealed. PUBG Mobile Global Championship was supposed to take place at the Coca Cola Arena, Dubai, UAE, without the presence of a crowd, but was supposed to be a LAN event.
