Note: Each league will have an entry fee upon qualifying for said league. Currently it is priced at $125 for Immortals, $75 for Titans and $10 for Gladiators (per team).
Upon qualifying for your respected league, teams will compete in an eight week long league and play five games per competition night. Each season will have an open qualifier, but a respected amount of teams from each league will remain in their league; dependant on where they place in the previous season.
ANZ Premier League have been pushing their qualifier through respected PUBG Community Discord’s and have been marketing the event to their social media platforms - although news of this prize pool has yet to be made to the public.
In a statement provided by a spokesperson for ANZ Premier League, Garry “Kopt” Richards, it states “the goal behind ANZ Premier League is to give the community something that will both help grow the scene and something that the players feel proud playing in. We are excited to launch this league and look forward to accommodating the players competing in our tournament.”
