We're left needing 1 British team, 4 German Teams, 3 French Teams and 2 Spanish teams to start the league.
Every team gets $125,000,000 to start their team and can spend up to $75,000,000 running a marketing campaign to increase their market and fanbase. Any remaining money goes towards the bidding for their active roster - there is no inaugural draft for the major leaguers - each player will go to the highest bidder (setting their contract for at least 2 years!)... A salary cap is in force so you can't just go blithely giving out massive contracts.
