Here’s a step-by-step breakdown -

1. Define the App's Objectives and Features: Start by outlining the app's purpose (engagement/profit etc), target audience (Asian EASL fans), and the features you want to include. Common features may include live scores, schedules, team information, player stats, news updates, and ticket purchasing.

2. Platform Selection: Decide on the platform(s) you want to target. Native apps require separate development for Android and iOS, while cross-platform apps can reduce development time and costs.

3. Select the right vendor: The next step is to short-list vendors based on their portfolio, reviews, and client testimonials. Go for application development companies that have experience in building fantasy sports applications.

4. Design and User Interface: From this stage onwards, your development partner will start creating app wireframes and designs to visualize the app's layout and user interface. This step helps to ensure a smooth user experience.

5. Development: Now you need to develop your application according to the chosen platform(s) and design. Depending on the complexity, this phase can take several months.

6. Backend Development: Now your development partners will need to set up a backend server to handle app data, such as scores, schedules, and other dynamic content. Backend development can also take some time depending on the complexity.

7. API Integration: Now it’s time to integrate APIs from the EASL data sources to provide real-time updates and information.

8. Testing: You now need to thoroughly test the app on various devices to identify and fix bugs and ensure smooth functionality.

9. Deployment and Distribution: Now you will need to submit the app to the respective app stores (Google Play Store and Apple App Store) for approval and distribution.

10. Maintenance and Updates: Plan for regular maintenance, bug fixes, and updates to keep the app running smoothly. 

How much does it cost?

Application development costs can vary greatly, but here are some rough estimates:

Development Team: A team of developers can range from $50,000 to $150,000 or more.

Design: Design costs can range from $5,000 to $20,000, depending on the complexity of the app and the expertise of the designers.

Backend Development: Backend development costs can vary from $10,000 to $50,000 or more, depending on the complexity of the backend system.

API Integration: This cost can vary depending on whether the APIs are readily available or need custom development. Budget around $5,000 to $15,000.

Deployment and Maintenance: Submission to app stores may cost around $100 to $500 per platform. Maintenance costs can vary but may range from $10,000 to $30,000 per year.

Overall, the total cost of developing an app for the East Asia Super League 2023 can range from $75,000 to $250,000 or more, depending on the complexity and scope of the project.
