We welcome team Desperados Moscow in Division 1 this year!
World Championships in 2017!
The EPBF would once again like to welcome teams from all over the world, as we host our 2017 World Championships across all four categories: Men’s, Women’s, Under 19s and Veterans.
We’d also like to take this opportunity to invite interest for a disabled category, to potentially be hosted in Bitburg.
Furthermore, we would like to show our commitment and dedication to the next generation of player, by making entry completely free for our member nations into the Under 19s event in Paris.
One of our goals moving forward is how to structure and develop our youth player base, and we are working alongside all of our federations to achieve this.
We’ve also decided to review our rulings on new teams entering these particular events. From now on, tie break situations following a five minute overtime point will no longer be decided by seeding, but move to a two minute, sudden death one-on-one.
We’re expecting 2017 to be the biggest World Championship to date for our sport, so please register your interest as soon as possible!

"What to say ... 25 years have passed and the legend persisted. From generations to generations the torch has made his way. The desire to excel, passion, perseverance and work. This year we prepare you a lot of surprises! We will be wearing a different jersey at each Millennium Series event. Each batch of jersey will have a unique design and each will refer to a glorious era of the Tonton. Each jersey will be produced in a limited series of 20 jerseys (not including those of the players)!"
We represent you the jersey Tonton will wear in Puget!
"This is our first 2017 jersey, we will wear it to the first round of CFE of the FFP - French Federation of Paintball and Puget for the first round of the Millennium Series. We thank DROM Paintball, which for the third consecutive season will be our official partner for textile equipment.
This first jersey refers to the most legendary jerseys that the team has worn. It comes from the time when Tonton was playing with two teams on the American soil and where it proved the excellence of European Paintball. This jersey has faced an entire nation on the sand of Huntington Beach, California 15 years ago.
You can already buy one of the 20 copies here: http://bit.ly/2jvXnJ6 It is an immense honor for us, new generation of the #LTF banner to wear this jersey at the beginning of the season and defend the values that go with it. As for the change of partners, I think you will have understood it is a whole new chapter that opens up to us and we are very excited about it."
