PEL is the pinnacle of PUBG Esports in the European region. The league has welcomed top teams such as Team Liquid, FaZe Clan and Pittsburgh Knights, successful European teams with proven track record at international events. It boasts a mix of old clans with massive followings like Natus Vincere and Ninjas in Pyjamas and young powerhouses on the rise such as ENCE and Team Vitality.
