There is already a league in Ann Arbor. Adam and Speedy Surf Boy run it.

For any league to work, *you* have to be able to host. Meaning you need to have at least 5 or 6 (working) games in your collection, and have them in an area that can hold say 10-25 people. Everyone wants to join a league, where you play *other* peoples' games. But there has to be some push back and some "share", or it puts too much effort on those people that meet the above requirements. If i didn't own any games, it would be awesome to go to other peoples' homes, drink their beer, eat their food, break their games. But that's not how this works...
Now if you're playing at a commercial place, and theyre getting coin drop, fine, no problem, you don't need to meet the above requirements. But for a home league, if you don't require *everyone* to be able to host, the whole thing spins out of control. And you just end up pissing off the few people that have games and a decent basement to hold them.
if you set up a league and a good number of people can't host, over time, those people start to get viewed as "leaches". i've seen this. it's not worth it. it's just not worth it....
