Riviera Cup Update- Division 2 Full!
Despite registration for our first event only being open for 20 days, we can already announce that Division 2 is full at 32 teams. We have an important waiting list in operation for Division 2 and already Division 3 is over half full!
We are quite surprised by this situation as for the 2012 season we increased the entry fee for Division 2 teams. This decision was made because Division 2 not only plays the same format but uses the same facilities and generally gets the same product and services as Division 1. Division 1 teams in past seasons, not only had to pay more in total, but have to pay the combined entry fees for the whole year completely, even before the season starts, whereas Division 2 teams enjoy their flexibility to play and pay per event, instead of having to commit to the whole season months in advance.
We had thought that some Division 2 teams would look to moving up to Division 1 given the price increase and request a license for a Division 1 spot.
We will try to accommodate as many teams as we can to play the Millennium Series this coming year but we feel that it is important to maintain the quality of our events and therefore will have to restrict the number of entries we can take.
We will contact Division 2 and Division 3 teams to see if those which are planning to play the entire season, would be interested in moving up to compete in Division 1 this season. We currently have Division 1 licenses available, but Division 1 will be restricted to a maximum of 30 teams.
If you are a Division 2 or Division 3 team and are planning to play the entire 2012 MS season, please do not hesitate to contact Ulrich at the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org He will assist you in obtaining a locked division license for 2012.
IMPORTANT NOTE; If you were planning to play in Division 2 or Division 3 we strongly recommend you register and pay as soon as possible, even if the divisions are full as date and time of payment received dictates your ranking on our waiting list. To register your team please contact email@example.com or visit www.millennium-series.com/teams.php?team=register

PRESS RELEASE - 2012 CALENDAR UPDATES
MILLENNIUM FRENCH RIVIERA CUP - DATE CHANGE

23rd to 25th March 2012
All accommodation information will be published shortly. At this event there will be accommodation available for all at exceptional pricing and to suit all needs.

Millennium Series 2012 Calendar
The Millennium Series is pleased to announce its preliminary schedule for 2012. Although we are waiting on some contractual completion in order to confirm some details, we are confident that we can release the following schedule to you so as to facilitate early planning for all:
2012 Preliminary Event Calendar
March 30th, 31st, April 1st - The Millennium French Riviera Cup (St Tropez-Cannes), France
May 25th, 26th, 27th - Bitburg, Germany
June 29th, 30th, July 1st - London, UK
4th Event – Venue and Date to be confirmed
The Millennium, as in 2011, will keep the Series to 4 events as we feel the prevailing economic situation in Europe does not warrant a return to 5 events next year. We will re-evaluate the situation once more at the end of the 2012 season.
Following a very successful 2011 Series which saw attendance grow against a backdrop of economic turmoil, The Millennium Series is determined to continue this trend throughout 2012 and to work closely with teams and traders to promote paintball and to encourage the sport and industry further still.
In 2012 we will introduce another new and exciting location and venue and following on from the 2011 success, will (in collaboration with the EPBF) once again give national teams the opportunity to compete for their country in EPBF International Cup competitions. Further information will be available in the coming weeks via The Millennium, EPBF and your National Federations.
As with the last couple of years we have been very careful when choosing venues to ensure the best possible value for teams, trying to keep additional costs to a minimum. Although this year we have spread slightly further afield with the addition of "The French Riviera", there will be superb and very reasonably priced accomodation for all available, (details to follow shortly), making this a very cost effective event to attend with an atmosphere second to none. This event promises to be an all time classic.
In order to fine tune and improve the playing experience at Millennium events, we will shortly be sending out a questionnaire to all teams participating in 2011 to gain a good understanding of our customer needs and requirements and act on them accordingly.
We look forward to welcoming you to the 2012 Series! Further event information, including 2012 entry fees for open divisions will be available shortly.
The Millennium Series Division 3 Winners 2011
3rd Place: Piratas Villa do Bispo
"The Pirates Team was founded eight years ago and since then has participated twice (2006 and 2007) at the Millennium Series, having failed to get great results until now due to the fact that numerous players have left the team.
We would like to dedicate this third place to the small and single sponsor of paintball "Emboscada".
We would like to congratulate the Millennium Series for organizing magnificent events and all the teams that have given us great moments of fun, and regretfully in the coming years will not participate in these events due to lack of sponsorship.
Thanks to all who supported us, we hope to see you soon."
4th Place: Personal Vendetta
"We would like to start by thanking the Millennium Organisation and the Refs. We would also like to thank our sponsors; GI Sportz and Paintball Distribution for the best paint we have ever shot during 2011, SIDE EFFECT for the ultimate Pro jersey and the after game, Maxs-sport for the ROCKSTAR ENERGY DRINK and their support, Mister MG for his perfect photography during all the season and Fullpaintball.com for the training field during the year.
We would like to thank all the other teams we are playing with at these tournaments.
We will come back even stronger for the season 2012; it will be a "Personal Vendetta".
Don't forget guys:"Play for fun""
