The League Dating App FAQ

Is The League the best exclusive dating app?

If you’re a successful professional looking for a long-term relationship, it’s a great app to try – the goal of this app is to form “power couples.” It’s not cheap and the dating pool is limited, but if you’re accepted by the membership committee you’ll be in very elite company.

By design, The League is not meant for people looking for a hook-up app – in fact, according to The League’s “concierge”, one of the reasons for the wait list is to “Completely frustrate and deter those looking for one-night stands.”

How much does The League dating cost?

Membership deals are rotated, so they change frequently. You may notice offers for weekly, monthly or quarterly memberships, as well as 6 months and 1 year.

There are 3 levels of paid membership: Member, Owner and VIP.

Depending on the promotion at the time, as a Member you can expect to spend around $299 for a 3-month membership, $399 for a 6-month membership, or $199 for a single month.

Joining as an Owner costs around $399 for 1 month, and it costs $999 to join for 1 month at the VIP “Investor” level.

The higher your membership level, the more matches you’ll receive. For all the premium features, check out this dating app review!

How long does the waitlist for The League take?

The typical wait time for The League is 3 to 32 weeks, although your own experience may be longer or shorter.

The time you spend on the waitlist varies by your location, age, gender and other factors such as member demographics in your area. According to the app, keeping a balanced gender ratio in each League city is important, so if there are a lot of men in your area and few women, you’ll likely wait longer than a female user would to get accepted.

Your profile quality also directly affects your wait time – the better it is, the better your chances. The app tells new users the typical wait time for The League is 3 to 32 weeks, although your own experience may be longer or shorter.

There are a few things you can do to try and shorten your time on The League’s waiting list, such as checking in every day, purchasing a paid Membership, or using a VIP Pass from an existing member. You can also send a “League Endorsement” to a friend, and if they sign up and complete their profile you may get a bump as a reward.

Which cities is The League in?

The League is in over 50 major cities around the US: New York City, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, DC, Boston, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Dallas, Seattle, Denver, Miami, Houston, Austin, San Diego, Detroit, Phoenix, Minneapolis, Charlotte, Nashville, Raleigh, Orlando, Portland, Tampa, Pittsburgh, Sacramento, Hartford, St. Louis, Cleveland, Kansas City, Columbus, San Antonio, Salt Lake City, Indianapolis, Las Vegas, Tulsa, Cincinnati, New Orleans,Milwaukee, Richmond, Charleston, Birmingham, Syracuse, Norfolk, Oklahoma City, Louisville, Buffalo, Albany, Madison, Santa Barbara, Providence, Jacksonville, Memphis and Honolulu.

The League is launching soon in Sydney, Melbourne, Mexico City, Singapore, Sao Paulo, New Delhi, Mumbai, Dubai, Budapest, Lisbon, Manchester, Hong Kong, Oxford, Tel Aviv, Edmonton, Ottawa and Kingston.

Do you need LinkedIn for The League?

If you intend to use The League as a “Guest” (free) member, LinkedIn is required. If you purchase a full membership, you can enter all your personal information manually, without using LinkedIn or Facebook.

But if you log in to The League via LinkedIn, you won’t have to worry about your coworkers seeing your profile – the algorithm automatically blocks people who currently work for the same company that you do.

Do you need Facebook for The League?

No, you can create a League account with your LinkedIn profile instead. Or you can be manually verified with a paid membership, and skip using Facebook or LinkedIn for verification.

However, the advantage to using Facebook with The League is it will automatically block your Facebook Friends from appearing as match Prospects.

Can you boost your profile on The League?

Yes – each Profile Boosts costs 5 League Tickets or $24.99 as an in-app purchase. This will show your profile to an additional 50 users.

What social media can I connect to my League profile?

You can connect Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat to your League account.

How many matches do I get each day on The League?

A standard profile gets shown to 3-5 users each day. You’ll get your “Batch” every evening at 5 (aka “happy hour”), which contains anywhere from 1 to 9 “Prospects.” The number varies based on your membership level as well as the number of people in your area who meet your preferences and vice versa.

When two people express interest in each other by tapping the “heart”, a match is formed. Matches on The League expire if there’s no activity between the two of your for a 14-day period, and the messaging platform is only available for 21 days.

If your match disappears before the 14 days, that likely means your match decided to “expire” it (read: you got unmatched).

Can I undo an “X”?

If you accidentally passed on someone you wanted to “Heart”, tap the undo button. You’ll only be able to do it on that evening’s “Batch,” and undoing a pass costs 1 Ticket.

How much are League Tickets?

League Tickets can be used to purchase additional premium features, such as buying an additional “Batch” of potential matches, boosting your profile to have it shown to more people, and re-activating an expired match.

League Tickets cost $5 each when you buy 5, with the cost per Ticket decreasing when you buy them in greater quantities.

What is League Live?

The League Live is a free, optional feature where you can participate in 3 “video dates” within the app. Each video call lasts 2 minutes. It’s an event that happens every Sunday at 9 pm. You can opt-in via the “League Live” menu on the “Settings” screen, and if you’re chosen to participate you’ll be notified.

How do you get an invite to an exclusive League event?

Invitations are issued by the app’s “concierge,” and are based on location and member demographics.

Who founded The League?

This exclusive dating app was founded by Amanda Bradford in 2014 and launched in 2015.
