I don't know how you are going to find the 11th game and default him or invoice him. I think you are always talking about up front costs, rather than end of season payment. If you were talking about end of season, you could bill by game count.

No, but you can keep an existing one.
Over the years, I've had enough conversations where people have told me about the money demanding BCF/ECF to know that the goodwill factor towards the ECF isn't that high. The goodwill factor was particularly diluted when all players on the international list were required to become ECF members in order to play in the 4NCL. At least one person turned Welsh in protest to get a lower rate and support Welsh chess instead of English chess.
When 80% of the ECF's Income is always going to be spent on the Office, International and Junior , there's never going to be much left to "give value" to the average players.
