The message shared by Freestyle team leader reads:

Unfortunately, the team won’t be allowed to play in the PMWL as long as the game is banned in Pakistan. We are very sorry for this, but we cannot go against the government’s laws. The team will still receive weekly attendance prize money even if you are not playing. Let’s hope the government unbans the game as soon as possible.

Originally the team was planning on playing in the PUBG Mobile World League (PMWL) 2020 via use of VPN however, they were informed by PUBG officials that use of VPN will be prohibited in the tournament therefore the team is sitting this out.
