PALS Event Official Statement
We are very proud to announce to all the official formation of PALS China which consists of Mr. Michael Tan and Mr. Michael Whybrew, and the establishment of the China Cup as the 1st leg of PALS 2011 in Hainan, China.
As of now (Aug 2010), the China Cup is set for the 24th – 27th March 2011.
We would like to commend PALS China for their achievement in getting the go-ahead from the strict authorities of China to carry out this historic event for the most populated country in the world.
China, with its population of 1.3 billion, is the largest untapped market in Asia, making up a good one-third of the Asian population. PALS China will be bringing paintball to a mind-boggling number of people, in a country famous for executing events on a grand and massive scale.
We sincerely do believe that this entry into China will bring about significant opportunities for both the global paintball industry and have significant impact for the recognition of paintball as a mainstream sport.
PALS, together with all her partners within the Asia Pacific region, and from Europe and US, will be doing their utmost to ensure the success of the event.
We would like to call upon all players and teams in and outside the region to do their part to support this momentous occasion.
Pending the release of official information, those who would like to obtain more info about the event can get in touch with us, and we will keep them updated with information as it is obtained.
Congratulations to the two Mikes of China, and major kudos from the rest of us.
