PGC 2022 Preview


by PUBG Esports

The PUBG Global Championship 2022 (PGC 2022) is almost here. This premiere PUBG competition will bring 32 of the best teams from around the world to one location. Only one squad will come out victorious. 

The PGC 2022 will take place in Dubai at the Dubai Exhibition Centre from Nov. 1 to Nov. 20. Participating teams will duke it out for a chunk of the $2,000,000 prize pool. More funds will be added to the prize pool through the sale of in-game PGC 2022 items. The final amount will be announced closer to the tournament’s start date. 

Who’s competing in PGC 2022?

32 teams from Europe, the Americas, APAC and Asia will start the tournament with a Group Stage that will run from Nov. 1 to Nov. 5. Here are all participating teams:

  • Twisted Minds
  • Soniqs
  • CERBERUS Esports
  • Entropiq
  • Yaho
  • Tianba Esports
  • Natus Vincere
  • Baegopa
  • 22 Esports
  • ShuaiGeDui
  • Danawa e-sports
  • Global Esports Xsset


  • Petrichor Road
  • Question Mark
  • eUnited
  • Daytrade Gaming
  • 17GAMING
  • FaZe Clan
  • Wildcard Gaming
  • Buriram United Esports
  • Gen.G
  • Polish Power
  • Luminosity Gaming
  • The Expendables
  • TakeMeAway Gaming
  • BBL Esports

Every team that qualified for this grand finale has a chance at taking first place, but let’s look at who’s been winning in each region in previous tournaments. The PUBG Continental Series 7 (PCS7) concluded recently in all regions, giving us a good idea of who’s coming into Dubai with a little pep in their step.

PCS7 Winners:

  • Americas: Soniqs
  • APAC: Daytrade Gaming
  • Europe: Question Mark
  • Asia: New Happy

Some of these teams – including Soniqs and Daytrade Gaming – have won multiple major tournaments throughout 2022. NewHappy will be defending their PGC championship title after taking the trophy in 2021. Previous results won’t matter much once the action in Dubai kicks off, but these teams will have targets on their back. 

Americas vs the World

Soniqs, eUnited, Luminosity Gaming, YAHO, Wildcard Gaming and 22 Esports are your representatives from the Americas. All six teams have proved their worth fighting through ESL Masters and PUBG Continental Series events. 

22 Esports will be the only team representing Latin America at PGC 2022. Similar to PGC 2021 with KPI Gaming, Daniel “HazeteN” Elias and his Brazilian teammates will carry the weight of an entire region on their shoulders when they head to Dubai in November. 

Soniqs have major international experience through their win at the PUBG Global Invitational.S in March of 2021. They faced some of the same teams in that tournament – including Buriram United Esports and Daytrade Gaming – that they’ll face again. Their 28th place finish at PGC 2021 may still haunt them, however. This squad will be looking for a much better result in 2022. 

Players from YAHO, Luminosity Gaming, eUnited and Wildcard Gaming were playing under a different banner during PGC 2021, although only one squad from the Americas placed as well as they would have hoped. TSM, who’s starting roster is now on Luminosity Gaming (Adam, their sub/analyst is now on Wildcard), finished fourth in Incheon last year. That success will certainly help them on the global stage.
