PUBG Charity Showdown Will Donate $1 Million To Charity of Team's Choice

It's all for a good cause. 


PUBG streamers and players will be going head to head against each other for charity, with the upcoming PUBG Charity Showdown tournament. The event will feature a $1 million prize pool, with every cent being donated directly to the organization of the winners' choice. The showdown will invite 40 gaming broadcasters and 40 PUBG pros to compete for their piece of the pie, and it'll be shown on the official PUBG Twitch channel as the action happens.

Teams will compete in four different matches on July 27 starting at 10 AM ET, and will be in first-person on the original PUBG map that started it all, Erangel. Every squad will feature two PUBG players and two broadcasters, with three different places to strive for. Here's how the $1 million prize pool will be broken down:

  • 1st Place Squad: $600K to donate to charity of 1st place winner’s choice
  • 2nd Place Squad: $300K to donate to charity of 2nd place winner’s choice
  • 3rd Place Squad: $100K to donate to charity of 3rd place winner’s choice

The PUBG Charity Showdown is part of the upcoming PUBG Global Invitational 2018, and you can attend for free if you already have a ticket to even just one day of the tournament. The PGI is happening from July 25 through July 29.
