Welcome to the ICC Champions League. The concept of this league is very unique because it is very similar to Football as far as finances, rating and transfers are concerned. I'm aiming to run this league for at least 3 seasons so embrace yourself. Format will be ODI. This is going to be a short and fun league. But it is heavily based on finances. So Beware! :P (Please Sign-Up after reading below) How It Works? You'll be managing your team as usual. There will be 8 teams in this league with 2 groups followed by a knock-out stage (2 Semi Finals and a Final). Each team will be given 250M Budget to start off and buy players mainly. Players All players are rated out of 100 OVR (Rating) and are categorized in groups ( Legend, Purple, Blue, Red, Gold, Silver, Bronze). The higher OVR is the more good a player is. 95+ OVR - Legendary players. Need no introduction. 90-94 OVR - World Class players and are expected to lead their teams. 85-89 OVR - Exceptional players and are the most consistent ones after Purple. 80-84 OVR - Great players and are expected to perform really well. 75-79 OVR - Very Good players and are expected to perform in some matches. 70-74 OVR - Decent players and they may not be as consistent but they are handy to have. 60-69 OVR - Average players and are the least expected to perform. Contract Each player will sign a contract with their team that can last from 1 to 3 seasons. A player will announced as Free Agent as soon as it's duration of seasons in the contract ends with its team. Meaning another team can also buy that player after the contract ends. There is no renewal of contract option. So be clever when offering no. of seasons to a player. Player Prices and Salaries Every player has its price and salary that will be paid by their respective teams. OVR Price (Per Season) Salary 95+ 8M 800K90-94 4M 400K85-89 2.5M 250K80-84 1.6M 200K75-79 1.3M 150K70-74 1M 100K60-69 600K 50K Salary of a player will be paid after every match and regardless if the player has played the match or not. Player's price will depend on the no. seasons that are agreed upon in the contract. (Example: 90-94 OVR player's price for 1 season contract is 4M, for 2 season contract will be 8M and for 3 season contract will be 12M). Buying Players Players will bought through Secret Auction in 1st Season (Auction via PM, I'll explain later). After season 1 players can also be bought via remaining players pool A.K.A Free Agent and can be bought from other teams by paying a price. All players Price (per season) and Salaries are fixed. The bids from the managers will have to be at least the player's price. Bank There will be an ICC Bank in this league and it will be able too give loans to those teams that if they get bankrupt. Transfer Window There will be a Transfer Window at the end of each Season. Injury, Replacement and Training Players can get injured through out this league. If a player is injured its Salary will be paid by ICC Bank and not its team until that player is fit again. If a player gets injured for the rest of the season. The team will be given the option to replace it for a Free Agent player only in its category (Example: Blue OVR player can only be replaced by a Blue OVR player, and same goes for all categories). The replacement player will take the injured player's position in the Contract. So there will be no need to buy the player again. Although its salary will be paid as per Contract. You can also buy Training session for a player for a fee before a season begins. Level 1 - Fee: 1M. There's 25% chance of OVR increase by 1 at the end of group stage. Level 2 - Fee: 2M. There's 50% chance of OVR increase by 1 at the end of group stage. Level 3 - Fee: 4M. There's 75% chance of OVR increase by 1 at the end of group stage. Buyout Release Clause And Release Fee There is 10% chance that a player's contract include a Buyout Release Clause. A Buyout Clause will be a buyout price of a player included in the contract and during Transfer window another team can approach and pay that buyout price to buy that player without 1st Team's permission. Buyout price will be player's 1 season price multiply by 4. If you want to release a player for any reason you need to pay a fee of 1M. Nothing will be refunded. Squad The squad size limit is 16 to 18 players. You must have 16 to 18 players in your squad at all times. You need to have at least 2 and 7 players who can or . Rewards and Bonuses Winners - 50M Runners Up - 35M Semi-Finalist - 20M There are also bonuses which you will get at the end of group stage and you have to choose one, but carefully!.
