Union Five Moscow entering Division 1
"Team Union Five Moscow was founded at the end of 2015. The team is made up of players who are willing to move on to the new successes and new achievements.
The majority of our players were on the roster of Headshot Moscow in 2015 and won the overall series in Open Division 1.
At this moment in time the team is coached by the most successful and experienced Russian players Vasily Panteleev, Alexander Berdnikov and Roman Lazarev ex Art Chaos players, which we believe will lead us to a success in Division 1. Also some of the members of our team will compete in the Russian National Team!"
Union Five have strong team spirit, a great training program and use of one of the best indoors facilities and are prepared for all challenges in the 2016 season!

The Millennium Series is very pleased to announce Drammen Solid are to join the CPL in 2016
Long standing Millennium team Drammen Solid have purchased a CPL licence and will compete in the 2016 season.
Millennium Series Director Barry Fuggle says “Drammen Solid have been such a long term supporting team of the Millennium Series and we are delighted they will be joining the CPL. Having a Scandinavian team once again competing in the CPL is very exciting”.
Fredrik Motzfeldt, Drammen Solid team owner comments “We are delighted to join the CPL, the final decision to make this investment into a CPL licence was made following the announcement that The Millennium Series would be introducing the WPBO500 format a year early in 2016. We really feel this is a very positive move in the sport. My players can show their skills now on a more level playing field, we can train more and play more often using this format and practice the skills required to be a force to be reckoned with within the elite CPL league. We cannot wait to get started on our campaign this season“.

Millennium Series confirms the WPBO 500 format for the 2016 season
Following the WPBO’s lead on introducing a limited paint format in 2017, The Millennium Series along with The EPBF and many other major European leagues, has decided to adopt the WPBO 500 Format for the 2016 season, in order to make tournament paintball more affordable for everybody sooner, rather than later.
In 2015 extensive testing of the format was carried out by the EPBF and a number of leagues in Europe, which received very positive feedback. Following this, teams asked the Millennium Series to adopt the format for this season. It was decided to firstly conduct an opinion poll of our Millennium customers in order to receive our customers views. The opinions obtained from over 200 teams were carefully analyzed and the result was conclusive with a vast majority of teams supporting a move to the WPBO 500 format. Even more convincing was the unexpected result from the CPL teams, of which 100% replied with 68% in favour of the change.
This is a very significant move in our sport, one which we believe will help improve the growth and health of participants and the industry alike. Players will be able to play and train more often and the skill level will rise with a greater emphasis on quality over quantity.
Players will now be able to budget more accurately with a lower cost of playing, more people will be attracted to our sport and not scared off by the high costs, existing players will be able to train more and attend more events.
Over time, this will lead to more teams forming, leading to improved business for all; manufacturers, fields and leagues.
Several national leagues will follow the changes introduced by the WPBO. The countries which have signaled their approval in general and will announce their participation shortly are:
We expect the main leagues from France, Spain and Portugal to officially confirm shortly.
