BUFFALO GROVE, IL - Tippmann Sports is pleased to announce that the Mil-Sim Paintball Team from the United States Military Academy at West Point will exclusively be using the company's new U.S. Army Paintball markers. As part of a recent sponsorship agreement, Tippmann will supply the highly-regarded squad with U.S. Army Paintball markers and technical assistance during the upcoming Scenario season.

U.S. Army Paintball markers and accessories are designed to allow players to take their game to the highest level of realistic play at a great value. The first marker released by U.S. Army Paintball, Alpha Black, was launched amid rave reviews earlier this year. The new marker is offered in several different configurations and is now available at leading paintball stores and fields as well as mass retail and sporting goods outlets across the country.

"Formalizing a relationship with West Point's Mil-Sim team was a priority for us", said Ron Goldblatt, Director of Marketing for Tippmann Sports. "They're a respected, high-profile team that understands the importance of playing with equipment that will stand up in the field. The team is excited about playing with U.S. Army markers and we're thrilled to be standing behind them this year."

The West Point Paintball Club is the oldest college paintball club in the nation. Each academic year, the group attends numerous events throughout the northeastern United States.

"The U.S. Army Alpha Black is a great marker...no doubt about it", said CDT Patrick Grimm, Cadet-In-Charge of the West Point Mil-Sim team. "We can't wait for our next Scenario event - we're definitely going to turn some heads this year. With the generous support of Tippmann Sports and U.S. Army Paintball, every cadet on the team will be able to attend events with a marker that closely resembles the weapons they'll be using in the future."
