Company sponsors numerous industry events and organizations to help grow the game

BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. (May 11, 2009) – Tippmann Sports is dedicated to continuing its longstanding support of the paintball industry through the company’s sponsorships and participation in a variety of leagues, associations, games and other special events around the globe. This year, Tippmann will be sponsoring four major paintball leagues, several industry associations and more than 50 events around the world. The company is also committed to the Tippmann Challenge Series, which has successfully introduced the excitement of big scenario games to countless players in a growing number of countries.

“As a company with a long and proud history of paintball leadership, we believe it’s very important to support a wide variety of industry organizations,” said Ron Goldblatt, director of marketing for Tippmann Sports. “It’s critical for both new and experienced players alike to have access to organized groups and events that help promote paintball and ensure the future success of the game. Plus, we appreciate the opportunities that our involvement creates to interact face-to-face with Tippmann players on a regular basis – that’s extremely valuable to us.”

The four leagues sponsored by Tippmann include: the SPPL (Scenario Paintball Players League), CSPPL (Canadian SPPL), UWL (Ultimate Woodsball League), and RPL (Regional Paintball League). In addition, Tippmann supports the MPP Scenario Games, Viper Paintball RTS Series, Paintball Extravaganza and the PSTA (Paintball Sports Trade Association).

Finally, anyone who has attended a major paintball event is probably quite familiar with the Tippmann trailer. The company has a strong presence at more than 20 events across the United States, including: EMR Castle Conquest, West Point Big Game, CPX Living Legends, Oklahoma D-Day, Tippmann World Challenge and Wayne Dollack’s Grand Finale. Some of the major international events include: Veckring (France), North vs. South (England), Gold Water (Argentina), Action Game’s Big Game Maneuvers (Russia), Wasaga Beach (Canada) and WSS’s Spring Game (Germany).

“Moving forward, we plan to continue standing behind organized events and groups that draw experienced paintballers, while also exploring opportunities outside of the category,” Goldblatt added. “Our recent exclusive partnership with the Backstage Artist Lounge, which gives us access to over 40 rock bands, including Motley Crue, Alice In Chains, Korn, The Offspring, Taking Back Sunday and Slipknot is a great example of how we plan to reach outside of paintball to help grow the game.”

The company serves the paintball industry from its headquarters and manufacturing facility in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
