We are just 3 days away from the PMCO Fall Championship, a tournament that is expected to be the landmark event for PUBG Mobile in recent times. 16 teams from across the globe have made it to Malaysia, to try and lift the trophy that would give them the certification that they are indeed the best team in the world. With half a million USD on the line and some of the most recognizable faces in PUBG Mobile, the stakes could not be higher. So here’s everything that you need to know about the PMCO Fall Championship 2019. 

Dates, Schedule and Format

The competition will last for 3 days and a total of 18 matches will be played. While we do not have an exact confirmation on which maps will be played at what time, it is safe to assume that the format will be the same as the Prelims stage. This means 6 maps will be played out on each day, with Erangel being played out 9 times and Vikendi, Miramar and Sanhok being played out 3 times each. 

The dates for the finals of the Fall Championship are 29th November - 1st December. Games will kick off at 12:30 pm IST or 4 pm SGT.
