Fans of PUBG Mobile Esports will undoubtedly be looking to Vampire Esports for another outstanding performance after an exciting year in the sport, being the defending champions in PMGC 2023. Along with winning the 2023 PUBG Mobile Pro League in Thailand, the team won the PUBG Mobile World Invitational for the second time in a row this year.

The team has won significant competitions, but they struggled at the South East Asia vs. South Asia Regional Clash in 2023, ending in 14th place. The Thai squad will have the chance to once again monopolize the spotlight and revel in the spotlight when the 2023 PMGC returns. This will not be a simple task as other top-skill teams like the Brazilian team Alpha7 Esports and the Mongolian team Stalwart Esports will certainly be gearing up to win.
