The Grand Finals of the PMGC 2022 will be held in an Indonesian LAN event, and the competition’s enormous $4 million prize fund will be awarded there. Indian teams weren’t mentioned in the announcement because the government of India has outlawed the nation’s Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI). Tencent has not yet disclosed the locations of the two League Stage slots and the one Grand Finals slot.
