Last year, several players tested positive for Corona during the 2020 PMGC finals. It was originally scheduled to take place Jan. 21-24, 2021, at the Coca-Cola Arena in Dubai. Just one day before the start, three players tested positive for Covid-19. As a result, the remaining players each played the final from their hotel rooms. Tencent hopes that the Corona situation will calm down by the PMGC in November so that the event can be played live.
