For Immediate Release:
December 29, 2015
The World Paintball Organisation (WPBO) is a result of cooperation & discussions between the world’s major leagues and the UPBF, in order to unify the sport of paintball and to take it to the next level and beyond.
The development of the global game has successfully grown to record levels of participation through the investment driven by the flagship tournaments; NXL, Millennium Series & Pals. With strong and constructive governance worldwide Paintball can become a true world sport.
The WPBO wishes to innovate and inspire through participation, engagement, education and proper regulation, harnessing the sport’s character-building values to engage new audiences in existing and new Paintball markets.
By creating a sustainable business and governance model to establish & promote global best practice, the WPBO aims to ensure Paintball becomes known & enjoyed by growing numbers throughout the world and considered a true sport by all.
In 2016, our sport will finally be harmonized worldwide with the same rules, ID cards and fields.
The new ID card system will allow players to use the same cards in all leagues all over the world. It will allow players & teams to have precise stats and worldwide player and team rankings.
The WPBO will have the same unique field, format & divisional structure worldwide, which in itself is a big achievement. We will all play the same game, a true sport.
A committee of the world’s best players and coaches have been working on new shapes to make playing the game the best it’s ever been. In addition they have been working on layouts which will be released early in the year and each league will be able to pick any of them for their events or create their own.
We strongly believe, by unifying the paintball tournament world, that the WPBO will be a unique tool to promote the growth of our sport.
We invite everybody to join us.
All information will be available on the official WPBO web site the 8th of January.
