$45,000 Prize Money Tournament! - The Sultan of Kedah Cup!
The Malaysians are really astute at organising tournaments after the announcement of the Asian Invitational comes the Sultan of Kedah Cup is a new tournament organised in conjunction to the Golden Jubilee Celebrations of the Sultan of Kedah way up North promises a total prize money of RM45,000.
This will sure to lure plenty of interest in teams from both leagues in Malaysia and possible teams from overseas. What I find attractive is the "all-in-one" cost for team registration which includes 3 nights of hotel and breakfast(and entry to the Waterpark) at $320 (open)- $220 (amateur/novice). That is really 'affordable' for a paintball trip - plus paint is at $180 per box.
And the man himself- the Sultan of Kedah will probably be giving the prizes away- which adds to the prestige of the tournament.
Be interesting to see who rocks up.
I for one is tempted to play this over NPL Melaka
Well done PALS people :)
