Swedish esports event organizing company G-Loot announced that it will host an international PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds: Classic competition between July 19 and 21. Following FACEIT’s Global Summit in mid-April, this will be the second of three PUBG Corporation-sanctioned events this year.
Taking place in the Stockholmsmässan exhibition center in Stockholm, Sweden, the GLL Grand Slam: PUBG Classic will feature 16 of the strongest PUBG teams from Europe, North America, Oceania, and Latin America. The event’s invitees or qualification methods have not yet been announced by G-Loot.

The event will offer competitors a prize pool comparable to that of the FACEIT Global Summit, which will almost certainly be upwards of $10,000 at the very least. The PUBG season will conclude with a $2 million Global Championship in November.
Founded in 2015, G-Loot has been involved in the PUBG scene since 2017, when the organization founded the Global Loot League. Since then, the Stockholm-based company has become one of the most well-known organizers in PUBG.
“We are immensely proud to announce GLL GRAND SLAM: PUBG Classic,” said G-Loot VP Simon Sunden in a statement to The Esports Observer. “It will be the largest tournament by us to date and we are very happy to welcome fans worldwide to follow the tournament on site in Stockholm or online.”
