Houston Heat Joins APL for 2014 season!

HOUSTON HEAT JOINS APL PRO DIVISION

Oceanside, Calif. - February 10, 2014 - The Houston Heat - a World Championship paintball team - has signed on to play in the APL Professional Division for the 2014 Season. The Heat joins San Diego Dynasty, the Camp Pendleton Raiders, Phoenix Contact and many more of the sport's top professional teams in the inaugural season of the APL.

While based in the Heart of Texas, the Heat features players from across the country and globe. The team was formed in 2012 and in its rookie season captured three professional tournament titles en route to earning the World Championship. The Heat followed up their championship season in 2013 with a tournament victory in Chicago and a year-end ranking of No. 4 in the world.

To learn more about the Houston Heat, visit the team's website here.

Registration for the SoCal Open is open at aplpaintball.com.

Each APL event will offer a minimum cash and prize package of more than $30,000, but when more teams sign up, the higher that dollar figure will go! Sign your team up, spread the word and an additional $15,000 could be up for grabs!

Looks like heat and dynasty will be fighting to be number one in apl all season long. In a way there is way to much professional paintball going on in America right now. With three pro leagues and not every ten playing every series how do we really decide who is the best. Sadly it'll probably always be the psp that we refer to as making world champs. But long live APL

Yikes. That seems to contradict the APL release. Any way you can check and be 100%?

I feel like it is more likely this is misinformation from the apl rather than a player from the team.

Randy Smith and I had a good talk yesterday when he told me he confirmed the guys would play in the first APL event. Randy wants to the team to play as much paintball as possible this year and other APL events are possible (but not confirmed as of now).

It seems as much of the paintball world is in "wait & see" mode with the APL. Is the webcast happening? Are prizes confirmed? Will there be vendors there? Will there be more teams? What will the reffing be like? etc. etc. etc.

After the first event many of these questions will be answered and teams/sponsors/everyone will be more comfortable committing to the rest of the season.

We have many other exciting announcements this week including other Pro teams coming to the first event, a 2nd paint vendor has signed on, multiple other vendors have committed to the first event plus a really cool partnership with the Marine Corps that is bringing some cool static displays, the color guard and 50+ all Marine teams that are playing in a Commanding Generals Cup on Wednesday before the event.

Lots of cool stuff coming!!!

I'm not trying to discredit the league in anyway, just wanted to let everyone know.

This event gives our team a great opportunity to play together before the PSP and with the team adding a lot of "new" players this is a welcome chance.
