Gamer.LK in partnership with Tencent to host PUBG Mobile National Championship with a prize pool of LKR 10M
Tencent, the creator of PUBG Mobile and one of the world’s largest game publishers, has partnered with the Sri Lankan Esports agency Gamer.LK to host the PUBG MOBILE National Championship for South Asia (PMNC) with a prize pool of LKR 10 million, the largest prize pool Gamer.LK has hosted to date.
This event will give Esports athletes from Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, the Maldives, Bhutan, and Mongolia the opportunity to compete in the official PUBG Mobile Esports ecosystem, as well as qualify for the upcoming PUBG Mobile Pro League South Asia.
Tencent has decided to extend its partnership with InGame Esports due to the quality of work delivered for previous campaigns such as the creative marketing campaign run for PUBG Mobile Pro League South Asia 2022, and the company reached a milestone when it was awarded the opportunity to organise PMNC South Asia with a prize pool of Rs 10,000,000 to the top teams in the competition—the largest Esports prize pool Sri Lanka has ever seen.
The prize money contributes to the advancement of casual competitive gaming to the level of serious Esports competition. With tournaments such as these, people will explore the idea of playing professionally with less reluctance, as the opportunity cost of giving up their former careers for a low-paying sport will be much less severe.
“We’re happy to partner with Tencent to bring over 15 years of Esports experience in the region to the official PUBG MOBILE Esports roadmap. Esports is one of the most widely played sports in the South Asian region, and this event allows aspiring athletes from Sri Lanka and beyond to showcase their skills and make their way to the global Esports arena where prize pools and careers are even more lucrative.” said Gamer.LK & InGame Esports CEO Raveen Wijayatilake
