The league will handle at last $1 million in prize money in its inaugural activity, which will commence with a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive season played over a ten-week period, with live matches broadcast and streamed twice weekly.

Franchise owners and professional players will share equally in revenues generated by the league, which will also be responsible for providing additional benefits to the player members such as financial advice and healthcare.

The league will have a rules and grievances facility to mediate any disputes involving members or the public in cases associated with its activities.
