PRESS RELEASE – MILLENNIUM WEBCAST TEAM 2014
Millennium TV is pleased to announce its commentary team for the 2014 season, which will ensure the best and most entertaining paintball webcast yet seen.
The team members are (from left to right);
Maurice Van Den Akker: Maurice started with the MS live crowd commentary in 2012, joining MS TV webcast from the first event in 2013. Maurice, being Dutch but living on the French Riviera, can speak four languages fluently, (French, Dutch, German & English), bringing a truly International element to the commentary.
With his languages, his knowledge of Paintball & knowing the people involved in the World Paintball scene, Maurice was an obvious choice for the 2014 MS TV webcast.
Maurice started in paintball many years ago, visiting all major tournaments & managing teams like Nextgen and Toulouse TONTON 2. He was also very active in Euroref, reffing the for The French Championship, the Ligue National de Paintball (LNP) and the local PACA leagues for the past 5 years. Maurice started his involvement with webcasting at the Millennium Malaga event in 2009 for SOP TV as well as working on videos for his home team Toulouse TONTONS. Maurice did a great job in 2013, ensuring massive improvements in the overall webcast event by event, bringing in excellent guests with which he interacted exceptionally well.
You can follow Maurice on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/maurice.vandenakker.9?fref=ts, on Twitter @nokia6618 or by email to; firstname.lastname@example.org
Bear Degidio: Many will already know Bear (aka Mr Worldwide), he has been involved with Paintball almost since he was born, playing his first event at 8 years and his first Pro event at 11 becoming the youngest pro player ever to play in professional 10 man events. Bear has been featured in multiple Xbox & Playstation games as well as apps & TV shows as a professional player and paintball personality. He has played professionally for many years being a double NPPL All Star and world champion. In addition Bear is CEO of one of the largest paintball park chains worldwide, Giant Sportz, with the world’s best fields like Hollywood Sports Park & the infamous SC Village. Bear lives paintball 24/7. In 2013 he featured as a guest on the MS TV webcast, providing entertaining & insightful commentary.
Shelley Farmer: Shelley has had an incredible impact on our MSTV Webcast, since joining it as one of the main presenters for the 2013 season. She is a skilled and knowledgeable presenter and has helped to vastly improve the content of our webcasts. Shelley is a natural choice to present MSTV once again in 2014, and for 2014 we will capitalise on her knowledge and experience further. Shelley will also now be a link between us and the players to enable us to constantly review and adapt our events, to help make the Millennium Series, THE events not to be missed.
Shelley was always going to be involved in Paintball having been introduced to the sport by her Father (a player for the infamous UK Predators) and Step-Father (a Pro player for Shockwave UK and the All Americans), she began playing at the age of 8. Aged 14 she competed in her first tournament, and has now competed in a vast number of events, for teams such as Wolf UK, London Tigers AM, MK Storm and Celtic Banshees. She currently plays for London Tigers, guests for Destiny in the US and is part of Team GB.
This World Class commentary team will be working hard in 2014 as many changes are being made to the webcast, allowing the audience in the grandstands to watch it and hear the commentary between points, extra events such as the one on one Championship etc..
To further enhance the quality and professionalism of the webcast the Millennium in conjunction with Radical Entertainment will have a fully equipped broadcast van at each event.

The Millennium Series in Puget 2014
We are pleased to announce that the Mediterranean Cup will be returning to Puget-sur-Argent in The Cote D’Azur, at the Park Saint James Oasis Village for 2014.
Since the summer, a large investment has been made to completely upgrade the venue making it Europe’s best paintball facilities, with 4 permanent fields with turf, air, water & electricity plus excellent Woodsball fields.
• All Fields have been completely leveled & graded and all have permanent artificial turf.
• New 200 car on-site parking.
• Trade area laid out with permanent pathways, access routes, power & water points.
• The venue is now rain proof.
With the addition of new Woodland fields, we will be offering new Millennium Woodsball Open events, 5 Man semi, 5 Man pump & 3 Man. The 5 Man semi will be open to teams eliminated from the traditional Millennium event, who will be able to enter right up until Saturday evening. Details to be announced on the website shortly. On the Saturday night there will be a big players party and on the Sunday a one-on-one tournament, (limited to 32 players), to add to the festival atmosphere.
With on-site low cost accommodation available, on site restaurant and bar, no car hire is necessary. There is also a wide choice of local hotels to suit all budgets. For these dates flights are currently very reasonable making this a very economic tournament to attend, whilst at the same time being able to participate in one of the best quality events ever held. The Oasis Village and many of the nearby hotels will be offering Millennium customers an even better deal than last year. All these deals will be available through The Millennium website at the end of next week.
This event will also see the biggest marketing campaign yet seen in paintball to ensure our sport receives the best possible publicity. This has been agreed with the Mayor and will include a huge number of 4x3m roadside signboards, video signboards, digital signboards, 1000’s of posters and flyers, banners, 100 spots on Virgin-NRG radio. ALL local TV and newspapers will heavily promote the event plus many other marketing agencies, ensuring we reach the biggest possible audience.
With the backdrop of the Cote D’Azur & the Mediterranean sunshine, (hopefully), this should be a fantastic place to kick of our 15th anniversary season long party atmosphere.
Remember, with the new 5 man breakout division, the Woodsball Open, the one-on-one, plus a few more surprises, there is something for everybody here who loves our sport.
Watch out for more to come at The Mediterranean Cup 2014 as we have big plans to party, entertain & showcase paintball like never before.
Registration will open shortly via the website, but if you want to secure your place ahead of this please contact firstname.lastname@example.org

Millennium Series 2014 Calendar & Series Information
we are pleased to launch the 2014 Millennium Series. 2014 is the 15th Anniversary of the Millennium and we intend to make it a year of celebration of all that is good in our sport. Our emphasise will be centred on teams and the enjoyment of our sport. Parties, atmosphere, special events, quality fields, quality reffing and player facilities will be at the heart of our season.
The 2014 dates & venue release information are as follows:
• Mediterranean Cup - South of France: April 4th - 6th 2014 - Venue details at 5pm CET November 29th, 2013
• European Masters - Germany: May 16th - 18th 2014 - Venue details at 5pm CET 6th of December 2013

• World Cup - Paris: September 26th - 28th - Venue details at 5pm CET December 20th, 2013
We have made some changes regarding the divisional options for the 2014 season in order to better emphasize the structure and options for players of varying levels of ability.
Amongst the changes will be a renaming of Division 1 to SPL2. As this is a locked division and feeds straight into SPL the new definition is more appropriate to the league and makes a clear division between locked and open divisions. Old Division 2 & 3 will be renamed Open Division 1 & 2. In addition we are launching a 5 Man Breakout division aimed at new players or those that want to play for fun [2014-divisions-millennium-series.pdf]
To add to the atmosphere and to assist in the growth of our sport we will also be running several new formats during the season according to venue facilities including a 1 on 1 championship, Tactical Formula, Woodland competition, Pump, 3 Man etc. However, the main emphasise will be on a fun season long party atmosphere bringing together the old and new from the last 15 years.
Over the next few weeks we will be announcing many new changes and the appointment of some new faces who are taking positions in The Millennium to ensure we provide the best possible product for the teams & leaseholders, our customers.
