The 2013 PBA Tour season includes the first ever PBA League, with eight teams vying to become the inaugural winners of the Elias Cup. The PBA League finals will air on ESPN on April 7, 2013, and feature a five-team stepladder format based on each team's performance in five events.

Points will be awarded based on a team's finish in each event (PBA League Round 1, Round 2, Round 3, Round 4 and Round 5). At the end of these five events, the top five teams will advance to the stepladder finals, with the remaining three being eliminated from contention.

Each of the events (PBA League Rounds 2-5) were based on qualifying scores from the PBA Winter Swing and its four events (Carmen Salvino Classic, Mark Roth Classic, Don Carter Classic and Earl Anthony Players Championship), and PBA League Round 1 was based on the combined qualifying scores from all four of those events. Bowlers on each team roster posted qualifying scores during the individual tournaments, which were then added together to seed each team into the separate PBA League stepladder finals. The top three teams for each event were automatically entered into the stepladder finals, with the other five teams competing in a clash round to determine the #4 seed.

The clash round consists of a one-ball roll-off, with the low score being eliminated until only one bowler remains. The highest qualifying team (#4 overall) gets four bowlers, the next team gets three, then two, and the 7th and 8th qualifying teams get one bowler, giving an advantage to the teams who performed better in the qualifying rounds.
