PAINTBALL GOES TO CHINA WITH PALS
The breaking news from yesterday was a huge one for Paintball and Paintball in Asia.
This is the press release on PbNation announcing that there will be a PALS - Paintball League Asia Series leg in China next March.
This is huge for Paintball because as everyone knows- China is a huge potential market of 1.3 billion people. If and when the Chinese do pick up paintball, the sport will grow tremendously and paintball manufacturers will go 'ka-ching-ching'.
It is also a great thing for Paintball in Asia with the PALS - Paintball Asia League Series being the first Paintball league to organise a tournament in China. The prestige of the PALS league will be higher than ever and will thus surely now be the attention of the other major Paintball leagues in the world.
PALS China was in the making since the beginning of the year. Australian Michael Whybrew spoke about it to us at the Sultan of Kedah Cup in May and finally it is a reality. My congratulations to the two Micheals Whybrew and Tan for making PALS China a reality.
The China Cup is set for the 24th - 27th March 2011.
