The nine ‘TEAM UP’ stars who have been chosen to represent their respective regions include:
- Giannis Antetokounmpo – NBA Player, MVP of 2018-2019 season;

On the first day of the PUBG MOBILE Club Open 2019 Global Finals on Friday, July 26, all nine stars will team up to form the ultimate team and compete in a show match. International musician superstar ALAN WALKER will also join for both the show match and an exclusive live performance, where he will debut his new song collaborating with PUBG MOBILE. Players can stay tuned for the official live broadcast of the finals on the PUBG MOBILE Esports YouTube channel.
The TEAM UP campaign makes up just one part of the massive three-day PUBG MOBILE Club Open 2019 Global Finals, where the top 16 teams from around the world will duke it out for ultimate bragging rights and a healthy slice of the massive $2.5 million USD prize pool. Over 90% of all on-site tickets are sold out, but players can still purchase the last remaining tickets.
