THE FIRST-EVER​ MUSIC-PERFORMANCE SPORTS LEAGUE

WHAT IS MUSIC-PERFORMANCE SPORTS?

Music-Performance Sports (MPS) is a revolutionary new form of music competition that's organized as a sport. The players are the independent recording artists, called, "Music-Sports Athletes", as they compete head-to-head with their songs and performances under a pro sports league infrastructure. MPS is a new and fun way for unsigned recording artists to engage new fans, earn income, and, potentially, open the door to bigger opportunities. We're dedicated to providing our players the resources and opportunities to expand their careers using our platform as a stepping stone, as well as evolving into a recruiting resource for music industry professionals seeking blue-chip talent. 

WHY DO WE DO WHAT WE DO?

The music industry is becoming increasingly dependent on social media popularity over skills and talent, which grants more quality artists to be overlooked because they may not have the BIG numbers to get on the radars of major label A&Rs, radio stations, creditable managers, and/or booking agencies. However, we understand that the music industry is a business, FIRST, and the importance of artists being marketable to be competitive in the industry. We also understand that the traditional way of promoting and marketing music is becoming more difficult for unsigned artists due to the over-saturated music market, and the budget disadvantages that the average independent artists have. 

OUR VISION IS CLEAR & SIMPLE!

Our vision is very clear...for Music-Sports to become a loved and respected form of sports entertainment, as well as becoming a beacon for unsigned recording artist career development and a recruiting resource for industry professionals seeking top-tier talent. For our players, our vision is for them to use Music-Sports as an opportunity to build on their brand, and fanbase with the potential of leading to bigger business opportunities.

The IACS UNIVERSE is a collective of three Music-Performance Sports leagues sanctioned by MSL. 

IACS is overseen by the IACS Competition Committee, which sets its rules. 

With the exception of the Divisional League, IACS-Players have to go through qualifying rounds for draft consideration.

Prospects must display skills and talent from a song and performance perspective to determine their draft stock.

The IACS is a pro-level league. Still, in its beta stage, It's intended to be made up of sectors (franchises) with the first sector being "IACS 7-Cities" (combines Hampton Roads, VA, and Richmond, VA).  The 7-week regular season is made up of players competing against each other with their original songs and performances, and are scored by a 4-judge system. Throughout the regular season, players are ranked based on their records with the top 4, and 1 wildcard,  advancing to the sector championship at the end of the season. Each sector champion clinches a berth to compete in the IACS Super Mic, the league's championship game. (MSL will host the first IACS Super Mic once it's established 3 sectors.)


IACS REGULAR SEASON: June - September

IACS 7-Cities Championship: November


In 2023, IACS 7-Cities will run its beta season with the goal of launching its inaugural season in 2024. MSL intends for IACS to mature into a 14-sector league within 10 years in the United States. Establish itself as an international league by 2035,  and, ultimately, petition for Olympic stature by 2045.

The SvS is the IACS' virtual league where songs compete head-to-head for cash prizes, ranking, and national championship.

The Divisional League (D-League) is IACS' semi-pro league for players who either did not enter that year's IACS Draft or were not drafted. The D-League provides the opportunity for players to compete in the league, and receive similar IACS perks. In the event, a player at the pro level is unable to continue, players from the D-League are eligible to be a replacement. Each game's winner clinches a seed in the D-League Playoffs. The season operates from March - October, and are all open invitations. Players must pay a $30 competition fee per game that they enter. D-League champions receive an auto-bid to next year's IACS Draft. 


IACS-7 Cities will launch its beta season of the D-League beginning March 2023.




REGULAR SEASON: March - October
