Last year we broke the news that the NPPL/PSP pro paintball merger was off of the table. Throughout the merger discussions, rumors circulated that the paintball manufactures were hoping to scale down the number of events in a season so that they could more effectively market paintball and support the teams competing. As you can only imagine, rolling several semi-trucks loaded with paintball gear and staff to 10 or 12 different locations is a costly endeavor.
Rumors have circulated as to what direction Empire Paintball, GI Sports, Valken, Procaps, Planet Eclipse and others were taking in the 2012 paintball season. The following press release landed in our inbox moments ago confirming Empire Paintball’s direction.
