G-Loot’s Battle Royale brand GLL are partnering with PUBG Corporation to host a new PUBG Classic event, GLL GRAND SLAM: PUBG Classic.
The multi-regional tournament will be held in Stockholm from July 19-21 at the Nordic region’s largest exhibition center: Stockholmsmässan. The event will include the 16 top teams from North America, Europe, Oceania, and Latin America.
The partnership between G-Loot and PUBG Corporation was first established in 2018 with multiple seasons of GLL tournaments.
Jake Sin, Global Esports Manager for PUBG Corporation commented, “With previous GLL events in 2018, G-Loot has clearly demonstrated that they are among the most innovative PUBG tournament organizers in the world, and we are proud to have them as a premier partner hosting a PUBG Classic in 2019.”
“When we started the GLL brand a little more than one year ago the strategy was clear. We wanted to create the largest tournament in the world with the world’s most played game.” Simon Sundén, Vice President and Head of Esports and GLL at G-Loot said: “It will be the largest tournament by us to date and we are very happy to welcome fans worldwide to follow the tournament on site in Stockholm or online.”
“The arrangement of GLL GRAND SLAM: PUBG Classic marks a milestone for G-Loot as a company and a great success for GLL. Everybody must feel that they are welcome to our arrangement. Anyone, anywhere in the world can play and compete for money in a game that they already play and love,” said Patrik Nybladh, CEO of G-Loot.
Esports Insider says: With so much competition within the Battle Royale market its key for PUBG to continue to host multi-regional tournaments. With G-Loot and PUBG Corporation already executing several seasons of smaller tournaments, we are looking forward to seeing what they can do on a bigger scale as the scene continues to develop.
