05 of March, 2010PRESS RELEASE
After listening to all involved parties including teams and sponsors it has become very clear that the global economic conditions are affecting this industry at every level. Whereas most companies want to fully support our series, the ability to spend as in previous years has been dented. This of course directly affects teams, many of whom are suffering from reduced budgets which reflect the current environment.
In addition to these issues we also have date clashes which, as always, we do our utmost to avoid.
Based on these points we have decided for 2010 only, to reduce our series to four top class events in order to help everybody work within their budgets.
Obviously entry fees and sponsorship costs will now reflect these changes. 2010 fees will now be:
CPL: € 7000.00 + Vat (Prize fund reduced proportionally)
SPL: € 5000.00 + Vat
Div 1: € 4400.00 + Vat
Div 2: € 1000.00 + Vat per event
Div 3: € 750.00 + Vat per event
M5: € 550.00 + Vat per event
Despite the reasons behind these changes we can assure everybody that the four events will be of a premium standard with every effort made to ensure a fantastic atmosphere and value for all.
The season will now run as follows:
Fuengirola Beach Cup - Malaga, Spain - 16th to 18th April 2010
Maxs Masters - Bitburg, Germany - 21st to 23rd May 2010-03-03
Campaign Cup - London, England - 2nd to 4th July 2010
Millennium Cup - Paris, France - 1st to 3rd Oct 2010
