2019 GI Sportz Imperial Program

2018 was an amazing year for the G.I. Sportz Imperial Program! Dozens upon dozens of paintball teams from the local level all the way to the pinnacle of competitive paintball chose to join the G.I. Sportz family and spend their weekends and vacation days battling inside the net wearing the G.I. Sportz, Empire, VForce and JT logos, and for this we humbly thank them. G.I. Sportz also wishes to express sincere appreciation for the local dealers, pro-shops and playing parks, who participated in the Imperial Program, assisting their valued customers in obtaining the equipment and paintballs needed to climb to the top of the podium at events around the world!


From local and regional events like USXBL competition to the mounds of the Iron City Classic and the National XBall League, 2018 saw G.I. Sportz Imperial Program teams experience remarkable success at every divisional level! Teams like the Apex Predators, the Northwest Dogs, NRG Elite, Detroit Action, T.O.G., DSO, the Hurricanes, Paintball Fit and the LVPP Icemen played amazing paintball in 2018, and the Veteran Militia battled to three NXL event victories, the 2018 series title and a World Cup trophy G.I. Sportz and Empire congratulates all our 2018 teams and thanks them for choosing G.I. Sportz!


From pants, pads, pods and packs to custom-designed, high-performance Race jerseys, VForce Profiler and Grill goggles with amazing HDR lenses, the remarkable Empire EVS goggle and the legendary JT ProFlex, to markers like the Vanquish GT, Stealth and Mini, plus paintballs like Five-Star and Evil that offer unmatched performance season after season, the Imperial Program offered players and teams the paintballs and equipment needed to compete at any level and enjoy success! With new additions like graphic anodized Mini GS markers, new Limited Edition JT Proflex goggles and, of course, the new Syx marker from Empire, the 2019 Imperial Program will only offer more, and better, choices to players on every level looking to compete and win!

I run an intramural group of about 20-25 players a month. We play at various fields in SoCal. We are non competitive but rock tons of gear from various GI brands.

Would we be eligible for any kind of sponsorship or is this competitive teams only?

Honestly we're just looking for some jerseys or cheaper paint to run our club.

There's really no benefit to a program like this for you unless your team is going to compete at a national level (aka. NXL).

If you're looking for discounted gear, I'm sure if you talked to your local shop they'd be glad to help out a group of 20-25 players.

100% NOT TRUE. Our sponsorship program runs through the local stores and fields. They can still work with us to get people set up on the local level. Just head over to www.paintballsponsorship.com to get the process started.

That's pretty cool that you guys are working through local stores to help local players and aren't stuck in the rut of "only tournaments matter."

Teams that play the USXBL will be very happy in 2019.




Teams that are thinking of playing the USXBL in 2019 you should PM me for details.

I have been around the league for a while and seen/shot all the paint. I can say you're at a disadvatage if you are not shooting GI paint.

Could someone answer if I would be able to use my GI private label CS2 with the Imperial Program or with any of the tiers involved.

Thank you!

The 5-star tier doesn't include a gun, so you could purchase the 5-star package and use you private label CS2

Thank you! That is what I was thinking of doing, but I just wanted to make sure my team won't be disqualified.

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.
