Falcons Esports crowned champions at PMPL Arabia Fall 2022
After a month-long season in the PUBG Mobile Pro League (PMPL) Arabia Fall Split 2022, a champion has been crowned. Saudi Arabia’s Falcons Esports cruised through the competition to take a convincing first place in the grand finals.
The PMPL Arabia was the first Pro League to begin in the fall season on June 20. After a three-week league stage, the top 16 teams advanced to the grand finals. The grand finals were played from July 21 to 23.
Falcons Esports: Underdogs to Arabian champions
Coming into 2022, Falcons Esports was a team not many people had on their radar. While they had won the PUBG Mobile National Championship Saudi Arabia in 2021, their performance in the PMPLs last year was less than mediocre. The team finished in 12th and 13th places in the two seasons last year.
Falcons Esports kicked off 2022 with a bang, though, winning the PMPL Qualifier. They performed extremely well in the spring season with a third-place finish and coupled that up with another third position in the Middle East and Africa Championship.
While Falcons Esports were a team to look out for in the PMPL Arabia fall season, they couldn’t perform well in the league stage. They finished in 13th place.
Falcons Esports completely turned their fortunes around in the finals, however. With 12 fourth-placed finishes from 18 matches, they dominated the lobby. At the end of the finals, they had 271 points, 80 clear of the second-placed R8 Esports.

The top 10 teams from here will now advance to the PUBG Mobile Pro League (PMPL) the Middle East and Africa Championship Fall. Furthermore, a team from Arabia should qualify for the PUBG Mobile Global Championship (PMGC) 2022 as well. Tencent hasn’t revealed the qualification criteria yet, though.
