Phoenix Contact to play NPPL World Championship in the professional division.

Phoenix Contact is a name you may not have heard before and it’s a name that has not existed long. The development of this team had modest roots and a few simple goals. To take the wealth of players and skill in Arizona and develop an organization that can be sustainable, marketable and professional in all aspects of the game. It is no doubt that our step into the professional ranks is unconventional, and there is a road of struggles ahead. We believe that our organization, structure, and approach to helping develop the sport as a whole will hold us together through the difficulties of professional infancy. It is our goal to help establish a greater attendance within the world of competitive paintball, first regionally, and expanding that development to the national stage.

The organization may be new, but the minds behind it and the experience within it are not. Players from former and separate organizations of Phoenix United, Portland Uprising, the Seattle Naughty Dogs, and Strange, are helping to grow this new organization with the experience gained from the histories with each.

We would like to thank all of our sponsors who have believed in us and taken the gamble with us to this point, and those who will join us in the future – Kee Action Sports, Empire Paintball, RPS, AXE, Z2, Acid Customs, Boss Paintball, Custom Products, FighterTown Paintball, Mesa Paintball Supply, The Arizona Paintball Players League (AZPPL), and Censys Designs Lab. We could not be in this position without your help!

Thank you for your support!

Phil Veatch – Captain, Phoenix Contact

Looks like more monkeys in the barrel.

**** yeah, it's gonna be fun seeing them roll down the hill now




Just for the record. I have no idea how it relates or applies to anything on this planet unless you actually had a barrel and monkeys.

This just sounded cool and relative and I really felt like taking it off my chest.



In all serious, mad props! Stoked to see what will come of this.

Been playing the tournament scene in phoenix for the last year and a half, never heard of Contact.. Maybe RM under a different Banner? That'd be Siiick.

I'm with Sara91, I've been around paintball an awfully long time and never heard of Contact. I'm moving this over to the NPPL section for the time being, but can move it back if we can get confirmation. Please let me know, and I can put it back into News. Probably the best way would be for Ed Poorman to drop me a note saying if they are or are not going to be pro.

Funny thing is, because of the way NPPL's pro division is set up, I've been wondering for a while how anyone WOULD move into a pro slot without basically buying their way in, like a franchise.

Edit - I do see on their Facebook page that they're saying they're playing the pro division in Vegas. They also list a new sponsor as of end of August as Smart Parts.

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.
