Fabrice will be bringing his vast experience to the Millennium and will be coordinating sponsorship and media from inside and outside the paintball industry ensuring maximum publicity for the series, teams and sponsors and increasing public awareness of our sport at all levels.
Fabrice has been involved in paintball since 1994, playing with teams such as Vision Marseille and has 15 years experience in the paintball industry: starting the Sport Attitude paintball department, growing the CAMP store and field, managing FACEFULL magazine and spending the last 7 years developing DYE Precision in Europe.

For The Millennium, Barry Fuggle commented; "It’s great to have Fabrice as part of the team. We have known him for many years and he has always been very supportive of what the Millennium is trying to achieve for European paintball. Being a player and very prominent in the industry, Fabrice has a full understanding of a professional paintball series from all points of view. We look forward to his input and his desire to see the sport of paintball grow in Europe for the benefit of all."
The Millennium Series is the longest established Pro Paintball Series in the world, not only with an unparalleled combined experience running paintball events but was also the first series to run as a professional sport on Sup’Air fields, the first series to run events in stadiums, the first series to run 7-man, the first series to run Race To Format, (both invented by The Millennium), and has continued to innovate and improve tournament paintball year by year. This has always been and continues to be the motivation and success of the series. The Millennium brought paintball from the woods into the public domain of stadiums by using Sup'Air ball arena paintball.

PRESS RELEASE – MILLENNIUM ONE ON ONE CHAMPIONSHIP
The Millennium is pleased to announce the launch of a one on one championship at this year’s events, starting in Puget. The event will be high profile with as many games as possible being played on the CPL field & covered by the Millennium TV Webcast. It has been designed to reward the best players in the world.
The system is simple; entry will cost €30 per player with a prize purse of €1000 cash to the winner and the title of Millennium World Player Champion. Each round will be a straight knock out and players will be drawn at random on a pre-designed number system. As each round must result in a clear win and in order to encourage good, entertaining movement, if both players are alive at the end of the 2 minute match, the one nearest the opponent’s start base will be declared the winner.
When you register you will receive a number from a hat, once all the numbers are allocated you will be able to see your opponent for the first round, and the draw for any subsequent rounds. For Puget, entry will be limited to 32 players, and will open on Friday 4th April at 5pm. There will be limits on number of players from an individual team in order to allow an opportunity for players at any level to test their skills. On the Friday registration there will be a limit of 2 players per team, if on the Saturday morning there are still places available, these will be open to all, including non-Millennium players, on a first come first served basis.

The Millennium are pleased to confirm that we will once again return to Sportschule Sportpark in Bitburg, Germany.
