Manchester Firm - Division 1: Champions, World Cup Paris-Disney 2011
"We started the year with our best and most experienced roster of players ever. Gaining 1st places in Paris Longchamp and Campaign Cup but a disappointing result in Germany, we knew we had to come back to France, play world cup and smash it.
We played some very close games against some talented and tough teams. Making several come backs and enduring some real nail biting moments, we achieved our goal. 1st place at World Cup and Division 1 champions for 2011 - an amazing feeling! The guys have worked especially hard this year and it has paid off.
We have to say a huge thanks to our sponsors, without them, what we have achieved simply would not have been possible. Planet Eclipse, for providing the incredible Ego11 and Geo2.1s that we use as well as top quality playing gear, Kee Action sports for our masks and packs and finally RPS for giving us amazing paint throughout the year you could check that most of the team who stood on the podium this year will have been using RPS paint, it's like lasers, Plus we would like to thank JUST Paintball for being there for us this year and of course Rich Harris and Mark from the CPPS, they have backed us now for 2 years with holding the best UK tournaments and practice venue, so if any one wants to come and play with The Manchester Firm we are holding a open weekend on the 29th and 30th of October details our on our facebook page...see you all next year in SPL :)"
The Millennium Series Semiprofessional Paintball League Winners 2011
4th Place: Ranger Warsaw
"Ranger Warsaw is the oldest, and currently the best Polish paintball team!
We are a group of players, who dream to prove their professionalism by advancing Ranger Warsaw to CPL in a few seasons. With our dedication and awesome sponsors, such as Dark Sports, Planet Eclipse and Skill paintball store, the CPL dream is within our reach
“No one fights alone” - our motto represents our philosophy - to fight together as a team of hard working craftsmen, who find strength in unity. We wish to thank the Millennium Series, the Euro Refs and the teams who organize and participate in the Series, for their hard work and dedication - you help us get stronger and better at what we do!
Next year you will hear our battle call much more often, so remember this: WHO WINS? RANGER!"
The Millennium Series Champions Paintball League Winners 2011
Winners: Art Chaos Moscow
"It is easy to pick up an event win, but it is MUCH harder to win the series. It happens because you have to maintain the same competitive level throughout the whole season, but it is SO HARD when you have SO many great, talented and always improving teams from all over the world. The Millennium Series is a unique league that has given such a chance of deserving such an honour of playing side by side with such competitors as top CPL teams. So we are very happy to be not just on top but to set a new standard - to play in four out of four finals of the year and to win three of them...None of the teams in the past three years have managed to do that. Looking forward to another great season where we will all together have another chance of setting new standards for OUR sport!!! There is a piece of Chaos in every art."
2nd Place: San Diego Dynasty
"We would like to thank the Millennium Series for putting on another great season of events. We really enjoy coming over to Europe because of the quality of events, the great competition, and the excellent reffing. Hopefully we will be able to come back again next year. We wouldn't be able to play paintball without the great support and gear from Empire, Planet Eclipse, Guerrilla Air, RPS, CP, DGX, and Maxs. We love coming over to Europe to play the Millennium, and appreciate all the support we get from the fans. Make sure to keep track of what we're doing by following us on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/DynastyPaintball or on our website at www.DynastyPaintball.com."
3rd Place: Toulouse Tontons
"For our 20th season (15 in pros since 1997), we would like first to thanks spectators for their support, all the players for their dedication and Frank Mouren for his involvement in the Tonton club and paintball career. We would also like to thank our sponsors: Dye with the best marker and playing gear, Carnage for the amazing paint, Supairball, Energy Paintball, Paintball Store and Xpaint.
The Tontons Flingueurs are by far the most succesful European paintball team in history . The 2nd worldwide oldest team still playing in pro category and we will be training hard with one goal: to win the Millennium CPL for the 6th time. We look forward to next season for the 20th team anniversary."
4th Place: Marseille Icon
"Marseille Icom has been playing CPL for 5 years now and it is clear to everybody that this season we’ve reached a new step, winning most of our prelims games, 2 quarters and one semi final. We stepped up during the year, bringing new kids into the CPL and, one step at a time we joined ranks with the big teams with a 4th place in the Champions League.
There was a time when we were close to hell, fighting to stay among the best. We have always believed in ourselves and we gave a chance to succeed to many kids insofar as we formed them.
We draw our strength from the fact that we are a 100% French team; we are a real unit, playing for one another, training young players. And we aim at getting them to the top.
This success story wouldn’t be possible without our very loyal sponsors: Planet Eclipse, Black Eagle, Pull-In, Reball, Tanked, Sly and CCS & Laquet Ets.
Thanks to our people, to our fans, to everyone!"
Art Chaos Moscow - Champions Paintball League: Champions, World Cup Paris-Disney 2011
"The Paris event is always very impressive, not only because of the beautiful city but also because of the French teams and the French crowd. The competitive level is always VERY high and it is always hard to win, World Cup Paris-Disney 2011 was not an exception. Not surprisingly in the finals we had to play not against the Americans but the proud sons of France - TonTons. Luckily we were stronger in spite of their motherland and cheering crowd. In the epic European final where both sides have shown sports professionalism and mutual respect, Art Chaos has managed to climb to the very top of European Paintball.
We give great respect to Millennium Series that keeps on making great events, we say thank you to the refs who are raising their professional level from event to event, to the fans and crowds who are making games a real sport and, of course, to all of our opponents whom we not just respect but consider to be our brothers in Sports that we are all trying to put to another level.
A separate word to our proud sponsors who have helped to create a new star in European history. These are; Sardar Sardarov, Arenda Auto and TCH - they have gathered us and have given us the fantastic opportunity to compete at such a high level. Carnage paintballs - the very best real European paintballs that are setting new standards, SLY equipment- the new and very innovative PB onfield gear, MACDEV guns- very best and super reliable gun that helps us to be on top for the second season in a row, MAXSIMUM customs for super stylish jerseys and design. Without you guys we wouldn't be the Art Chaos Moscow that is well known today.
There is a piece of Chaos in every art...even in paintball"

Regional champion, french vice-champion and finally champion of Division 2 on this last Millennium event.
The best way to conclude the season!
For this we really want to thank; Justin Rabackof for his professionalism and his expertise, GI Sportz and Steve Rabackof and our main and most important partner this year, Paradise Paintball.
We also want to say thank you to Paintball Distribution, Sterling Paintball, Universal Paintball, Mr Gregory Praud, all our pit crews, supporters and sparring partners.
And finally a really really big thanks to our dedicated sports coach, the "Coach Giger" who believes in us and pushes us continually to the highest level..."

Offenbach Comin At Ya - Semiprofessional Paintball League: Champions, World Cup Paris-Disney 2011
"2011 was a hard year for our team. It was a year with lots of ups and downs. Unfortunately more downs than ups, but during the 2011 season the team grew together more and more.
We have a good roster now and with our 1st place in Paris we were finally able to show our potential in Europe’s biggest international paintball league - The Millennium Series.
For 2012 our goal is the promotion to the Millennium Series CPL Division. At this point we want to thank again our Sponsors, DYE, Paintball Kiosk and also the rest of our team, Comin’ Correct and our friends and fans who supported us and made this all possible. THANK YOU!
