die Gründer der ProLeague
Gegründet wurde die Liga im September 2011 unter dem Namen FIFA Allstar League von Baka und lief zuerst in Zusammenarbeit mit einer FIFA 1on1 Transferliga. Im September 2013 war der Ansturm und das Interesse an einer Liga dertart groß, dass sich eine eigene Pro Club Liga realisieren ließ. Der Name fiel auf: PROLEAGUE und wurde fortan von Baka & Laika geführt. Im März 2014 verabschiedeten sich die beiden Gründer der ProLeague aus der administrativen Arbeit der Liga und überließen von nun an einem 6 Köpfigen Team der Pro Club Community die Zukunft der Liga. Wir Danken Baka und Laika, dass Sie solch ein tolles Projekt gestartet haben und auch den Mut hatten es in fremde Hände zu legen.
lange Zeit Ligaleiter der 2. Liga
timmortal war einer der 6 Köpfe die nach dem Abgang von Baka und Laika die Zügel der ProLeague übernommen und zukunftsweisend mitgestaltet hat.
Zu seinen Aufgaben zählte, in der einjährigen Zeit bei der ProLeague, die Betreuung der 2. Liga und später auch der Erstkontakt zur iFVPA.
timmortal verließ uns zum Ende FIFA 15 in Richtung ProClubs.de, wir wünschen im viel Erfolg und Danken ihm für seine Zuverlässigkeit und stets souveränen Einsatz.
das Allroundtalent im Team und Außenminister zugleich
AriGold war ebenfalls einer der 6 Köpfe die nach dem Abgang von Baka und Laika Verantwortung übernommen hat um die ProLeague am Leben zu erhalten. Nach seinem Abgang hat das Team einen Alleskönner verloren der bei einem Problem stets den kühlen Kopf behalten hat und immer eine Lösung parat hatte. AriPedia war ebenfalls in der Entscheidungsphase der neuen Seite eingebunden in welche Richtung es gehen soll, was benötigt wird und in einige Designfragen involviert. Zu seinen Aufgaben zählte die technische Koordination der Homepage und der Erstkontakt zur EVPA und iFVPA. AriGold danken wir für seinen großen Einsatz in und um die ProLeague herum und wünschen alles Gute bei zukünftigen Projekten.

4.2 Minimum number of players: A team must consist of at least seven players in order to participate in the match. Each team must play with the minimum number of players.
4.3 Use of known as: In all ProLeague competitions (evening/sponsored tournaments may choose a different arrangement), the "known as" name of the player pro must be set in such a way that the known as is unmistakably associated with the Origin ID.

4.5.1 Home right: The team which has home right always has the right to invite the opponent to the match. The ProClubs friendly match is used for this purpose. Exceptions for the home right are regulated by §4.5.3.
4.5.2 Troubleshooting: With the "invitation bug" it may happen that due to technical circumstances the away team cannot be found or the away team does not receive the invitation of the home team. We recommend the following solutions:
- Changing the Captain
- Lobby reset (All players leave the mode and reload it only when all players are in the FIFA main menu)
4.5.3 Handing over the home right: The right of invitation may be assigned to the away team if
- The home team cannot find the away team in the friendly match search.

- The away team verifiably does not receive the invitation.
The home team and the away team must agree by mutual agreement that the away team shall take over the right of invitation.
4.5.4 Creation of a replacement club: If the home team is not succesful with the measures according to §4.5.2 or does not agree with handing over the home right according to §4.5.3, the team, which uses most user-controlled players in the game, must create a replacement club. Should both teams compete with the same number of user-controlled players, the away team must create a replacement club. The right to invite remains with the home team.
4.5.5 A tolerance of 15 minutes waiting time from the scheduled play date shall be included. The specified 15 minutes are approximate and this does not mean, however, that they may be exceeded in justified cases.

Should there be no decision despite the conversation with the league leader, an admin decision about a new game date or the judgement of the game will be made. A simple "Hey" or another unclear message to only one leader of the opposing team is not sufficient as a contact attempt. There are several ways to contact the respective opponent.
4.5.7 If the start of the match is delayed due to disconnects or FIFA bugs, the following opponents shall be informed of the expected delay without delay on the same evening.

The game is started from the beginning. If goals, assists, own goals, yellow or red cards have already fallen during the abandoned game, these will be added to the new result or game report. A dismissal received in the abandoned match also applies to the repeat match, i.e. the player who received the dismissal must immediately get a new dismissal at the start of the match in order for the under-number to be restored. The opponent must support the sending-off.
4.6.2 Bugusing: All types of bugusing are prohibited.

4.6.4 Hindrance with standard situations: Any hindrance in standard situations and penalty kicks. These include in particular:
- Non-compliance with the 9.15m distance for free kicks and penalty kicks through the use of player animations. The advance of the wall is unaffected by this.

If a player is sent off more than once or receives the fourth yellow card and one or more send offs during a match week, the period of suspension is extended by one additional game per send off/fourth yellow card.
