As we reported earlier, two Indian teams TSM and Galaxy Racers got invites to the upcoming PUBG Mobile Pro League – Season 1 2021: Arabia. Though the Indian fans got pretty excited to see their favorite teams and players get back in action. With just 10 days left for the event, PUBG Mobile Pro League – Season 1 2021: Arabia is set to start on May 17th, 2021. But, due to the travel restrictions inflicted by various countries around the world on India amidst the increase in the number of COVID-19 cases in the country. TSM most likely won’t be able to travel and participate in the PMPL Arabia.
Recently, The United Arab Emirates National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority announced an extension of an entry ban for passengers traveling from India. Indians can enter the UAE — even as transit passengers — only if they have stayed in some other country for at least 14 days, during this period. Thus making it impossible for the team to participate in the event.
Though Galaxy Racers managed to make their way to UAE before the imposition of the travel ban. The team is all ready to participate in the event. According to the post reported by The Pyramid Network, the slot allocated to TSM will be filled by The Snipers, a team from Egypt.
Though this news comes as a shocker for all the Indian PUBG Mobile fans. But KRAFTON recently announced the relaunch of PUBG Mobile as BATTLEGROUNDS MOBILE INDIA, an exclusive game for the region. Soon the Pre-registration of the game will be starting along with the announcement of an esports plan for the Indian players.
