VBA Franchise Location Map
Welcome to the VBA ProAm Association (PAA) Pro League
The ProAm Association is an NBA Style MyPlayer Draft League, owned and operated by Renaissance Gaming, where all teams are franchises with real Governors, real coaches, player drafts before each new season (or players assigned to teams in their local area), with PAA league revenue sharing for franchise governors and player salaries. Renaissance Gaming is actively reaching out to partners and sponsors to secure revenue that will first go toward league improvements, player salaries, and eventually actual earnings for the league franchise governors over and above the playoff pot earnings, making all franchises potentially profitable small businesses.
Note: Currently, the franchise fees will be waived. But as the league develops and takes on sponsors, the franchise fees (fee for active season PAA franchises) will kick in and rise commensurate with the franchise values. Franchise fees are split in half (after the 10% league fees), one half going to pay all player's salaries and the other half going into the playoff pot for the teams.
Example: For 30 teams with $500 franchise fees
Each Team - $500 (minus $50 league fee) = $450. $225 goes to players team payroll, $225 goes to playoff pool
League Wide - $15,000 (minus $1,500 league fees) = $13,500. $6,750 goes to players league-wide payroll, and $6,750 goes to the playoff pool
All of these numbers grow as league revenue grows and teams begin receiving playoff pool earnings in the first round.
To become a PAA Governor:
You don't need to play 2k to become a franchise governor. As governor, you can recruit an in-game Coach/Captain to run your team from the floor, or assign one of your players to be your team's coach/captain. Your captain and coach can be the same player if they play for the team.
You must, when applicable, be able to pay your franchise fees (which go into the playoff cash pot) and team payroll either via personal funds or through sponsorship. You are allowed to have multiple sponsors at various levels (see Sponsorship Guidelines page).
Governors/GMs are responsible for recruiting their team, securing their sponsors, managing your team's financing, and overseeing the operation of your teams per the league franchise agreement and league rules. Renaissance Gaming and the VBA have staff that can assist you with these tasks, but ultimately, it’s YOUR team to manage, under the PAA Franchise Agreement (PAAFA).
All governors must register as site members and have a live interview (via phone or voice chat on MS Teams) with the VBA Leadership Board or Commissioner before being accepted as franchise governors.
Team governors are ultimately responsible for any fines handed down from the league to their team (except for direct player fines).
Fill out the Franchise Request form to begin your journey to eSport franchise ownership.
Being an eSport Franchise governor is a serious small business endeavor, must be 18 or older and able to handle the responsibility or you could be forced to relinquish ownership without compensation.
To become a player:
You need to make sure that your MyPlayer is leveled up to at least an 80 to be eligible for the League. Initial MyPlayer rating can be no higher than 85 and the league max EARNED rating is 92, and you are locked into the build that you register with. Below these levels, you can still participate in the Summer League until you qualify for the Pro League
Any player can join the ProAm Association (PAA) for free simply by registering.
To get started in the league, you need a legal league build rated no higher than 85, and complete all of the Eligibility Requirements from the checklist on the Getting Started page.
