Team Soul and 7Sea Esports has apparently received a clearance to participate at the PUBG Mobile World Invitational 2022 despite its rebranded version, BGMI, being currently banned in India. These two teams will be competing at the main and afterparty event respectively.
PMWI 2022 is the mid-season invitational event held in Riyadh with a whopping amount of $3 million at stake. The prize money is divided into two parts with the main event receiving $2 million and an “Afterparty” event with another $1 million prize pool.
India received a special slot after a span of two years to qualify for PMWI 2022 and this seeding slot was presented to the BGMI Pro Series 2022 winners.
Later, a special tournament was held by the officials called BMSD 2022 and 7Sea Esports won this event to gain a slot in the Afterparty event.
Soon after these two teams received a seeding slot, BGMI was banned in India and the officials have been working with government authorities to resolve this issue.
Apparently, the Indian representatives have got some kind of clearance as the official page of PUBG Mobile Esports included the names of both of the Indian teams while giving an overview of PMWI 2022.

Initially, it was unclear whether the Indian teams will be playing on the global stage after two years or not but now, fans can rest assured that they can see their favourite teams in action at PMWI 2022.
PMWI 2022 main event starts from 11th August and will end on 13th August and the afterparty will be held on the subsequent weekend.
