More opportunities lie ahead in 2023
PUBG MOBILE and Level Infinite will continue to offer more esports opportunities for the Philippine community. Early this month, the PUBG MOBILE National Championship or PMNC was announced and will serve as the national tournament that will seek out the best Philippine team to represent the country in the upcoming regional PUBG MOBILE Professional League.
