Overview[edit]

The 9th SonicTV BJ Starleague was announced on 9 December 2013.[1][2] On 13 December, Monkey3 Music was announced as the title sponsor.[3] On 25 December, Monkey3 Music and Sonic decided to cancel their contract following a disagreement surrounding proposed changes by Monkey 3 Music.[4] Following the breakdown of the sponsorship contract, the event was sponsored by Sonic's own company, Sinbal Farm.[5] However, on 8 January, following the success of the group selection ceremony, a new sponsor stepped in, Humanworks[6] Blizzard will help by promoting the tournament through their official homepage and social network. Official commentary will be provided by Kim Carry, Lee Seung Won, and Sonic.

There was a group selection held on 4 January.
