NOTICE: PALS China dates shifted due to Boao Forum

Due to unavoidable circumstances, the PALS China Cup dates will have to be moved. The tentative dates are 29 April – 1 May.

The ban is due to the Boao Forum for Asia Annual Conference, which will be held on the 1st of April. As the Forum will be attended by some very influential people from the government, business, and academia spheres, the Chinese government has banned any sports involving firearms up to 2 weeks before and after the forum.

Michael Whybrew, Tournament Director of PALS China Cup, has issued an official statement about the shift in dates, part of which can be read below. Continue reading

Get Ready For an MPOC Roadtrip! Destination… Malacca.

MPOC 2011 Melaka Cup PosterFor the first time in three years, the Malaysian Paintball Official Circuit will be taken out of the capital state of Malaysia, to the historical city of Malacca.

Since its last venture to Kedah in 2008, the MPOC has stayed mainly in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor, to keep costs down for players – traveling costs, as exotic as it may be, do weigh heavily on players.

Now though, the league is ready to take to the road once more.

Players are looking forward to the 5th & 6th of March 2011, when the second leg of the MPOC, aka the Malacca Cup, will be held. The venue is currently slated to be Dataran Pahlawan, which boasts a field famed for its gorgeous outdoor turf and fantastic drainage, though this remains subject to confirmation. Continue reading

Paintball Heads Towards Mainstream

PRESS RELEASE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
JANUARY 2011

 

KUALA LUMPUR – It’s “ready, steady, shoot!” as the Malaysian Paintball Official Circuit (MPOC) starts off with a bang for the 2011 season at the Padang Bukit Ekspo in UPM, Serdang.

Over 70 teams have signed up for their dose of adrenaline, excitement, and paint in the prestigious league organized by PALS Event, marking a historic first for the event, and requiring the addition of a third paintball field to the standard two per event.

GOODIES FOR ALL

“Our registration fees are one of the lowest in the industry, but we decided to offer teams free registration anyway to start the season,” says Allan Phang, PALS Assistant Tournament Director. “This is in line with our goals of making paintball more affordable for everyone – a necessary step as paintball heads towards mainstream sport status.”

Normally, registration for the league ranges from RM250 to RM650, depending on the Division that the team is registering for, and teams usually number between 40 to 50. In a bid to support all facets of the industry, PALS is also offering free booth space to paintball field owners so that they can promote their respective fields. Continue reading
