This is the first official round of the Spring Split. Prior to this though PUBG Corp. and Tencent held the qualifiers.
A whopping 42,000 teams from around the globe were narrowed down to a much smaller number. All of those teams registered to compete in the online qualifiers, but only a handful of teams made it to the official first round.

PUBG MOBILE Esports tournaments have a $5 Million total prize pool this year
Fans of PUBG MOBILE have more of a reason than ever to consider trying their hand at qualifiers in hopes of making their way up the chain.
Teams which compete in the various PUBG MOBILE tournaments have a chance to win some really big prize money. Double from last year, the prize pool for the various Esports tournaments for PUBG MOBILE in 2020 will total $5 million.
Granted, $5 million is not a total grand prize winning amount. And is instead a collective amount that is spread across the different tournaments. Nevertheless this still means that prizes for each tournament will be more than they were last year.
Which means teams will be competing even harder for the bragging rights and a larger paycheck. If you're not already subscribed to the PUBG MOBILE Esports YouTube channel, you can view all of the progress there.
