PMWI is set to take place in two stages, namely Main Stage and After Party Showdown. The main stage will boast a Prize Pool of $2 Million while Party Showdown will have $1 Million.  Team Soul who won BGIS 2021 is qualified for PMWI 2022: Main Stage. The winner of the BGMI Showdown was also rumoured to be given a special slot in the PUBG Mobile World Invitational (PMWI): Afterparty Showdown, which is scaled to take place from 18 August to 20 August. However, an official announcement is due to be made, so fans should take this leak with a pinch of a salt and wait for an official statement.

The competition will be high and tough for the teams as we saw gruelling action in the recently concluded BGMS. Global Esports‘ comeback was sensational and they lifted up the trophy by beating Team Godlike by 4 points. The event saw some tough competition among the teams even though it is a third-party event, but was the first-ever televised esports event.
