PUBG Mobile PMPL Arabia Spring 2023: Format
The PMPL Arabia Spring 2023 follows the standard format that all iterations of the Pro Leagues have followed across the world for some years now. In the said format, teams compete on the weekdays against each other in a round-robin format and the top 16 teams according to the points earned move into the Super Weekend. The Super Weekend points across all weeks of play are added and the top 16 teams with the most points earn a spot in the culminating Grand Finals.
