Reject Crowned PUBG MOBILE Global Open Champions

The 2024 PUBG MOBILE Global Open Brazil (PMGO) Main Event concluded last night, marking the conclusion of one of the year's most anticipated PUBG MOBILE Esports tournaments and the inaugural open event. Over three electric days, from April 5th to 7th, São Paulo, Brazil, was the epicentre of PUBG MOBILE Esports, where Reject made history to secure the championship title and a significant portion of the $500,000 prize pool.

The final matches were a testament to the skill, strategy, and determination of the most talented squads in the world. The live atmosphere in ARCA, São Paulo was electric, with the energy and enthusiasm from fans inspiring competitors to perform their very best.

The last three days of exhilarating PUBG MOBILE Esports action have showcased world-class talent and seen many underdogs make game-changing impacts that defied expectations. Day one of the PMGO Main Event saw Brazil’s Alpha 7 Esports soar above the leaderboard, with an impressive 20-point lead over the 2023 PUBG MOBILE Global Champions (PMGC) IHC Esports in second. Though, nothing is certain in this highly competitive tournament, as Alpha 7 Esports ended day two tied with S2G Esports, 12 points behind the new leaders Reject after a strong performance from the Japanese team. Meanwhile, IW NRX, BOOM Esports, and IHC Esports battled it out for the top mid-table.

The final day of the Main Event showed no signs of slowing down, with fantastic plays and heart-racing clutches from the teams. BOOM Esports and Dplus kept the frontrunners Reject under immense pressure in the second match of the day, with an intense three-way firefight. With jaw-dropping accuracy, BOOM Esports’ Ponbit put an end to Reject’s momentum, securing the Indonesian team their 2nd chicken dinner. At the end of match 16, IHC Esports aimed to stay in the fight, as they dug deep and climbed back up the ladder after a tournament record of 20 eliminations, rising back to 5th ahead of the remaining two games. Despite a flurry of high-risk, high-reward plays constantly shifting the leaderboard, Reject stood strong ahead of the final game in first place with 156 points.

Heading into the final match, 24 points separated first place from Alpha 7 Esports in second. Continuing their aggressive playstyle, IHC Esports eliminated Reject early into the match, loosening the leaders’ grip on the crown. Alpha 7 Esports were left with the chance to steal Reject’s throne, though it would require a spectacular performance. Alpha 7 Esports played safe in the mid-game, before diving into an intense engagement with Vampire Esports who were battling for top 3. In the end, Reject’s excellent early performance and maintained composure throughout the tournament led them to victory, earning the title of Champions.

Speaking on their well-fought victory, Reject’s Kento “SaRa” Suzuki said, “Actually, I have no words. I’m feeling blessed. I have to say, thanks to all my supporters, my team, and my sponsors. To be honest, I really like this country, I’m glad to come here. Arigato!”


From the Open Qualifiers to the Offline Qualifier rounds and the fiercely competitive Prelims, each stage of the PMGO tournament was a showcase of both emerging talent and established powerhouse squads in PUBG MOBILE Esports. The journey to the Main Events was marked by unforgettable matches and moments, highlighting the global nature of the competition and high level of skill within the PUBG MOBILE community.

James Yang, Senior Director of PUBG MOBILE Global Esports, says:

“What a way to kick off the 2024 PUBG MOBILE Esports season! PMGO was a brand new global event and the level of competition truly exceeded expectations. The response from fans in Brazil was incredible and they were truly immersed in the PUBG MOBILE experience. This has set the bar high, and I can’t wait to bring more fans in more regions PUBG MOBILE esports at the highest level with the exciting new structure we have introduced this year.”

PMGO kicked off what is set to be an exciting year for PUBG MOBILE Esports fans. Building on the momentum of being the most-watched Battle Royale Esports game in 2023, fans can expect bigger and better tournaments throughout the year. Following the success of the PUBG MOBILE Super League (PMSL) in Southeast Asia in February this year, PUBG MOBILE Esports has introduced the PMSL to EMEA, CSA, and Americas, bringing the action closer to the fans and giving teams the chance to showcase their skills on their home turf.

The inaugural PUBG MOBILE World Cup (PMWC) will take place in Riyadh, as part of the Esports World Cup! Reject’s victory in this year’s PMGO has earned East Asia an additional slot at the PMWC, giving their region more opportunities to shine on the world stage. Concluding this year’s competitive season, the 2024 PUBG MOBILE Global Championship (PMGC) finals will be held in the United Kingdom, promising an unforgettable showdown as teams battle it out for their share of the $3,000,000 prize pool!
