THE FIRST EVER MUSIC-PERFORMANCE SPORTS LEAGUE

The INDEPENDENT ARTIST COMPETITION SERIES (IACS) is MSL's flagship Music-Performance Sports program designed to provide unsigned recording artists with a revolutionary new way to promote their music, engage new fans, earn income, and show off their competitiveness as players.


 IACS takes a unique approach to music competition as it organizes it as a sport under an NFL/NBA-like infrastructure. 

IACS includes a scouting combine, draft, preseason, regular season, playoffs, and power ranking. 


Like any sport, the goal is to rank the nation's, and, ultimately, the world's elite based solely on skills, talent, and competitiveness. 

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 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 to have the numbers they need from a marketing and monetary standpoint. 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 budget strains. We believe Music-Sports will become the future of how unsigned artists will be developed, promoted, and even discovered. 

OUR VISION IS CLEAR

As a platform, our vision is 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 opening the doors to bigger business opportunities for them to thriving careers after Music-Sports.

WHERE DO WE SEE OUR FUTURE?

The IACS is a franchised league which are called "Sectors". The first sector is "SEVEN (7) CITIES, " which combines the 757 and 804 area codes.

MSL's plan is to grow into a 32-sector league within 10 years and establish its first international sector within 15 years.

MSL's ultimate goal is to petition for Music-Performance Sports Olympic approval by 2044.

In the SvS, an 8-players roster is drafted to compete over the 4-virtual games. Each game is contested as a single-elimination tournament. Each match consists of Spotify-listed songs in which the winners are decided by a combination of a public poll and 3-IACS judge scorecards until a game champion is crowned. The winner of each game clinches a seeded playoff spot. The 4-champions will face off live on stage for the SvS championship belt.  


The series runs in the month of September with the playoff in October. 

The IACS is the primary music-performance sports league as an 8-player roster is drafted to contest over a 12-week regular season. Players will compete head-to-head live on stage in which each match's winners are determined by a 4-judge scoring system. Rankings and playoff positions are determined by win/loss records. Playoffs consist of each sector's championship. The sector champions will compete for the league championship at the IACS SUPER MIC in October.


The series runs in the month of June-October.
