PUBG Corp. and StarLadder are almost ready to get the PUBG Europe League (PEL) under way.

Atila Yeşildağ, Esports Operations Manager at PUBG Amsterdam discussed the league in a statement: “We are very excited with the start of the inaugural PEL season as it represents the pinnacle of PUBG esports in Europe and it is the natural continuation of our overall esports strategy. Going forward, we believe PEL will provide players a foundation on which to build their skills and strategies and fans a place to regularly engage with the best PUBG teams in Europe.”
The teams that will compete in the PUBG Europe League are CrowCrowd, Jokers, M19, Natus Vincere, Red Diamonds, ENCE, FaZe Clan, G2 Esports, Ninjas in Pyjamas, Pittsburgh Knights, RYE Gaming, Team Liquid, Team SoloMid, Team Vitality, Winstrike, and Digital Athletics.
Esports Insider says: It’s good to see the PUBG Europe League preparing to launch considering the North American and Korean leagues are already under way – as well its own Contenders league having already started. Europe houses a number of incredible teams that can contend on the global stage in PUBG so we’re intrigued to see how things play out from March 21st.
