National X Ball™ League (NXL™) Announces 2003 Season Schedule

Now the world will get a chance to see “THE WAY PAINTBALL WAS MEANT TO BE” with the announcement of the 2003 NXL™ Schedule. “A NEW ERA IN PAINTBALL” began with the introduction of X Ball™ - the game - at the Nations Cup, held in Pittsburg last August in conjunction with the Diablo International Amateur Open.  Now eight (8) professional paintball teams representing the largest metropolitan areas of the United States will play an action-packed 112-game schedule in the X Ball™ format culminating with playoffs and World Championship.

The NXL™ is the first professional paintball league to employ match play rather than the traditional tournament competitions.  The member teams of the NXL™ are:

Baltimore Trauma
Chicago Aftershock
Detroit Thunder
Los Angeles Ironmen*
Miami Effect
New York Xtreme
Oakland Intimidators*
Philadelphia Americans
(* Team Name may be subject to change)

The NXL™ will play its schedule including the playoffs at various venues beginning in February and concluding in October.  The season will commence at the 2003 DraXxus Mardi Gras Open in New Orleans and continue at the NPPL/PSP L.A. Open, NPPL/PSP Las Vegas Open, NPPL/PSP Chicago Open, Millennium Series Toulouse Event, NPPL/PSP Atlantic City Open, and culminate with the playoffs and World Championship at the NPPL/PSP World Cup in Orlando.
In Orlando, in addition to the crowning of a NXL™ Champion, the top teams from the NXL™ will compete against the top European X Ball™ teams to crown a “World Champion”.  Paintball has never seen an organization committed to the growth of the sport through the spectators.

The Vision Statement of the NXL™ is:
“The National X Ball League™ will increase the awareness of paintball by providing quality entertainment for spectators and provide an opportunity to develop paid, professional paintball players.”

For more information on the game of X Ball™ or the NXL™, please contact Mike Ratko, Commissioner, at 514 337 1779, ext. 209 or via email at info@nxlpaintball.com.
