PUBG Europe League, for professional teams, will be the pinnacle of a competitive pyramid, where teams of different levels can compete with equal in skill rivals.
Unlike some other well-known esports outings, the PUBG Europe League will start its journey based on a principle of promotion and relegation. PUBG believes that this system will ensure long-term stability of PUBG Europe League by giving talented teams fair chance to take part at the highest level of stage and organically building competitive dynamics. PUBG Europe League does not plan to follow the franchise model at the moment because PUBG values teams that will enter the League through hard work and dedication.
Open League, for entry-level teams, will be divided into three regions: Europe West, Europe East, and Middle East and Africa. Contenders League, for teams of a higher skill level, will unite the whole of Europe. Teams will be able to get into the top divisions of the League by winning in special promotion tournaments at the end of each phase.
