LOS ANGELES – June 30, 2020 – Tonight saw LOOPS ESPORTS take home the win at the PUBG MOBILE Pro League (PMPL) Americas in an exhilarating final week, marking the end of  PMPL Season 1 of the new pro competitive layer that was introduced to the program this year.

The first Season of PMPL Americas moved to an online only format in response to COVID-19 to ensure the health and safety of the PUBG MOBILE community.

PUBG MOBILE is based on PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS, the phenomenon that took the world of interactive entertainment by storm in 2017. Up to 100 players parachute onto a remote island to battle in a winner-takes-all showdown. Players must locate and scavenge their own weapons, vehicles and supplies, and defeat every player in a visually and tactically rich battleground that forces players into a shrinking play zone.
