The World League will witness pro players from West and East region with high levels of competitive skills. The league will take place for one month in the newly built studio in Katowice. The competition will consist of five broadcast days per week and 130+ players taking part. The winning teams from the World league of each season will face each other in the upcoming World Championship which is to be held at the year-end.
