new company Paintball Promotions Inc takes over NPPL (dates and locations changed)

This would explain some things at HB. From the NPPL Press Release:

Quote:
THE NATIONAL PROFESSIONAL PAINTBALL LEAGUE'S Surf City USA Open came to Huntington Beach for the 11th year in a row and the results have been overwhelmingly positive. 115 teams, 30 vendors and over 50,000 spectators enjoyed the perfect Southern California weather for the industries number #1 event.

"The City of Huntington Beach called me right after the event ended for congratulations and wanting to lock in the event for the next few years. I want to thank all our players and staff for making the HB event fantastic." Chuck Hendsch, NPPL

On the heals of the successful HB event the NPPL has decided to evolve and refocus its energy on growing the sport of paintball by serving as the true Governing Body for the sport. The NPPL will move away from running their own events and instead sanction other promoters to run and operate the events.

"My passion has always been to grow the NPPL brand and the sport of paintball. By passing on the operation of the events to a different event company it allows me to concentrate on the true mission of the NPPL." Says Hendsch.

The NPPL has signed an exclusive licensing contract with Paintball Promotions Inc to operate and run the National NPPL events. PB Promotions will begin immediately getting ready for the remaining 2013 events. Teams and sponsors should see a seamless transition in all departments.

PB Promotions has evaluated the venues and dates for the remaining previously announced events and unfortunately will need to make some adjustments.

The remaining 2013 NPPL schedule is:
June 7-9 Northeast Open OXCC - Chesapeake City, MD
August 9-11 Chicago Open - Paintball Explosion - Chicago, IL
October 4-6 Las Vegas Open - Las Vegas, NV

"When PB Promotions reached out to Valken to tell us about the new plan and direction for the NPPL we were very excited, especially with the decision to bring the next two events to quality paintball fields like OXCC and Explosion. Paintball fields are the lifeblood of our industry and they are two of the best in the country. Valken continues to put our support behind the NPPL events and look forward to three more great events in 2013." Gino Postorivo President & CEO, Valken Sports.

More information will be coming soon. Keep checking back to www.NPPL.com or call 714-758-7575 for details and to register for the next event in Chesapeake City.
This sounds like a good move for them overall as PB promotions can focus more on running a league and they are bringing it back to fields like PSP has started to do. It kind of sucks that Tampa and Denver have been completely canceled rather than rescheduled but such is paintball.


UPDATE:

The NPPL is still owned by the NPPL ( the pro teams) and that will never change.

The NPPL was run by a sizeable group of volunteers and now it has contracted a logistics company to promote and run events.

Teams and sponsors will see a seamless transition in events (other than location changes).

This will ensure better run events with better value for teams, players, spectators and sponsors.

The new direction will continue to include the NPPL board, Chuck, Pev, and the Pro teams.

Sounds like everyone that has money in the nppl doesn't want to make money. They are outsourcing their jobs to another company who they will have to pay. I'm interested to see what they say about this. It seemed VERY vague not sure how you guys took it across

Also, they dropped their Denver event.... HMMMMMMMMMM lol

Sounds about right. Can't find any real information on them, wish we had some idea as to what events they may have run so we could get a better understanding of what this truly means for NPPL.

What I'm getting from it, Chuck is backing out (probably a good thing for the league) and a no name company is taking over to run the events (bad for the league). That, plus the event changes are the only things of real importance in the PR.

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.
