For one event or a season? And Id say at least expect to pay $3500 for everything including food, hotel, airplane tickets, entry, car rentals, gas. And thats a low estimate, don't forget that gear my go down, **** may get stolen/lost ect.

That will largely depend on what division and format you wish to play in. Are you looking at the cost for one event, or the cost of a season? Driving, bus, train, or flying? Renting a car? Got an extra hopper? Tank? Gun? If not, better have the money to buy one or have them repaired on the spot because equipment craps out on people more than you think, and don't think that it won't happen to you as well.

If you're playing 5-man, I would estimate the costs to be around $1300 for 3 events with 6 players on the roster, give or take a few hundred depending on your transportation situation and if you have a paint deal. That's not including practice leading up to each event. Xball will be closer to $2000.

Depends on what events too..obviously the flight price for Chicago and the flight price for WC in Orlando are going to be really different. Entry for different events also cost different amounts and a lot varies on where you're willing to stay for hotel too (Location, Affordability, Quality...choose 2). You can probably fit your team into two rooms with two beds each. That doesn't account for paint, transportation, and food. and time you have to take off work..and after all that you'll likely want to check out some of the vendor booths as well.

Here's how I got to that number - each cost listed below is per event.

Entry - $900 / 6 players = $150/person
Paint - $40/case x 3 cases per player = $120/person
Hotel - $50/person
Food - $50/person, being generous

That puts you at $370 per event, per person for the bare necessities, not including transportation. Multiply that by 3 events and you get $1120 and some wiggle room. You'll still need to take care of transportation and any equipment needs.

It depends on what division you play.
http://pspevents.com/information/prizes/

If you participate in one of the paint to podium promotions and win an event, you may end up getting your money back. Paint to podium programs are essentially an agreement in which you shoot a specific brand exclusively for the tournament and you are refunded your paint bill based on how well you place. For example, with DXS, a 1st place finish using only DXS paint for an event results in 100% of your paint bill being refunded.
