The New Way to RUN Paintball!
Posted 26 April 2011 - 12:52 AM
So Mike believs Paintball is dying! Why I think it is dying is because there is no real market for the game/sport like baseball or football golf etc. So what I think the NPPL or whom ever needs to do is to change the way the game is play...
What I am saying is the format of Paintball is weak. There are four major tounreys though out the year which limits the exposure of paintball to 4 big events. Gold also have 4 big events called the Majors!
Paintball should be ran like Golf. Have a 4 day tourney (some what like thay day now). Have Pre Lims on Thur and Fri. the top teams advance to Sat Sunday with the Sunday Grand Finally.
Have the 4 major tounreys STILL but keep Paintball in the public Eye by having events every week like Golf!
Why I think this will work is it gives life to many local fields. By traveling around the U.S. (eventually around the world) this will help bring life to the game in the specific areas the pros Play. Think about it, Would you not LOVE playing on the same field as your Pro Idles? Also it brings traffic to many more fields if there events every week and if there is more traffic, there runs a chance of more players.
Changing the format to weekly tounreys also give the game purpose to play with a possibity of making a living out of paintball. Though some players do making a living out of the sport, there seems to be a very narrow window of making this sports a living and one big reason is there a too little events played.
More traffic to local Paintball Parks
More events can lead to More Paintball Awareness
Give a bigger reason to play the game
Help manufacturs push for more sponorship
Could help Grow the sport
Will take much time and formating
Will cost a lot of money short term
May not work (considering the market of Pballers is too small)
What do you guys think... I know playing Paintball every weekend 4 days in a row can get pricey but look at golf. Golf is super pricey almost to the same degree yet the sport is a BILLION dollar industry and to many is Boring to watch... IDK i think My idea can change the game forever!!!!

I think getting paintball into the X-Games is what would really help out this sport. Everyone watches the X-Games.
Certainly not everybody, but the markets are similar and there is the common theme of adrenaline filled sports
