Overview

The Proleague was the Premier Brood War team league and the Premier StarCraft II team league. It was formerly hosted on both cable channels, OnGameNet and MBCGame, while a company called IEG held the broadcasting rights. After MBC closed down its gaming doors, it was solely broadcast on OGN. For the 2012-2013 Proleague season, the broadcasting rights were split between OGN and SPOTV. Since the 2014 Proleague season, it is exclusively broadcast by SPOTV Games.

In 2012, ProLeague switched from Brood War to StarCraft II, first holding a Hybrid League, then fully switching later in the year.

After a few years of StarCraft II ProLeague, it was announced on October 16, 2016 that ProLeague would be discontinued, ending its 14 year legacy.[1]

Map Pool

The maps get renewed every season. These are often commissioned by KeSPA for the Proleague. The 2008-09 season of Proleague was the first to feature periodic breaks, during which KeSPA could change the map pool. They took advantage of that rule for the first time in November 2008 switching the map Raid Assault II for Rush Hour 3. The Map Pool for a specific season can be found on a seasons overview page.
