Dynasty and Empire part ways

Taken from dynastypaintball:

San Diego, CA-San Diego Dynasty and Empire Paintball will not be renewing their sponsorship agreement. Dynasty has been using Empire jerseys, pants, pads, loaders, packs, goggles and gear bags since 2010, and used products from JT since the inception of Dynasty in 2001. In that time Dynasty became the winningest team in the history of paintball with more tournament wins and series titles than any other team in the history of the sport.

Empire Paintball and JT Sports are brands of KEE Action Sports LLC, the worldwide leader in the manufacturing and distribution of paintball equipment and supplies. Their brands include Empire, E-Flex, E-Vents, Prophecy, JT Sports, RPS, EVIL, Axe, BT Paintball, HALO, Pure Energy, View Loader, Invert, Invert Mini, and Pure Energy.

“Dynasty greatly appreciates all of the support from the Empire family of products that have helped us continue our winning tradition over the past few years,” said Alex Fraige, Captain of San Diego Dynasty. “Unfortunately Dynasty and Empire are moving in different directions, but we wish Empire nothing but the best moving forward. It’s been a great relationship, and we’re sorry to see it have to come to an end.”

Jason A. Taitano, VP of Marketing for Empire added, “Dynasty is one of the best teams in paintball, and we have enjoyed a great relationship with them over the years. We wish them continued success.”

They'll have to get a new paint sponsorship though and GI seems the most reasonable to move to since they're on about the same level as Empire with the products they have i.e.(masks, paint, pads, pants, jerseys, packs, etc)

That's what I was thinking.

GI doesn't need Dynasty with them already having Heat. I'm more surprised they haven't gone for Damage with Rabackoff being such a big factor in GI.

Would make sense for PE to move in and get the soft goods too, since it's their flagship team.

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
