PUBG Finnish League Season 5 – Format and Rules

POSTED BY Jere Vanhala 23.12.2019

Earlier this month, we announced the fifth season of the PUBG Finnish League.  At the same time, we also told how the upcoming season will be qualifier for Finland’s first PUBG Pro tournament. In this announcement we will be reviewing the revised structure and rules for the coming season.

The most significant rule reform relates to the fact that we will also welcome international teams for the upcoming season. In this way we want to give foreign players the chance to participate in the Lantrek 2020 PUBG Tournament.

Rules for PUBG Finnish League Season 5 can be found here.
