According to trusted sources, Millennium Series Organizers held a secret meeting Friday night at PSP 2008 World Cup. For the 2009 year, event organizers intend to require gun manufactures to be financial sponsors of the league in order for players to use the companies markers during competition.

For records sake, our initial coverage of this information incited an unfavorable response from industry insiders. While the industry is at odds over how this will impact the league, and most importantly, those competing in the circuit, we can safely assume that this move will be unsettling to our sport. Its no secret that paintball is suffering due to the situation on Wall Street and manufactures who are already suffering in the economic downturn will bear the brunt of the burden.
