The main stage will boast a Prize Pool of $2 Million while Party Showdown will have $1 Million.  Team Soul who won BGIS 2021 is qualified for PMWI 2022: Main Stage. The winner of the BGMI Showdown was also rumoured to be given a special slot in the PUBG Mobile World Invitational (PMWI): Afterparty Showdown, which is scaled to take place from 18 August to 20 August.
