The league, which was co-founded by Ice Cube, will begin play June 28. Its 10-week schedule will travel to 10 cities, concluding in Las Vegas for the championship on Aug. 26.

“I think the game is gonna stay competitive [because] 52 percent of the revenue will go to the players,” Ice Cube told Maya A. Jones of The Undefeated. “If you win a championship, you get more of the money than everybody else. Second place and so on all the way to eighth place.

“Guys are playing for either a big chunk of the money or a little chunk of the money, but I think it’s a great incentive to give real play because what we didn’t want to do was put on an all-star game and not have a game. You know, we want all-stars there playing hard.”
