Montreal NRG Becomes WPL Pro Franchise

I am very pleased to announce that Montreal NRG has finalized its bid to acquire a professional level franchise in the World Paintball League (WPL). League competition is scheduled to begin this fall with each event being taped for television.

There will be 36 shows that will be aired during Prime Time on WGN Superstation which reaches more than 61 million homes through cable and satellite. Montreal NRG will appear in at least 7 shows during competition and will include team and player spotlights.

Montreal NRG will also have teams competing in the Ultimate Arena Paintball league (UAPL), which is the minor league feeder system for the WPL with teams at the AAA, AA, & A levels. The best of the UAPL players and teams will also be showcased each week as they battle their way to the top.

The format is 3-Man speedball format in a 50'X100' arena with 15 bunkers on the field. There are 24 Pro teams in the WPL split between 3 conferences divided as Eastern, Central and Western.

As part of the Eastern Conference, Montreal NRG will compete against the following 7 teams.

Atlanta Strange
DC Shooters
Jacksonville Raiders
Miami Nemesis
New England Distortion
Pittsburg Smoke
Tampa Bay Warriors

Montreal NRG will begin recruiting players to fill both the 5 Pro WPL slots as well as 15 more places in the UAPL.

Expect to see information on tryout dates soon.
