2006 Tentative Schedule
The PSP is proud to announce our tentative schedule for the 2006 season. We will be expanding our tournament season to 6 events including two summertime events. The PSP will be returning to the great state of Texas as well as Sin City. We will also be holding one of our summer events in sunny Southern California (when it should actually be sunny).
Please be aware that this is a tentative schedule as we are still in the process of confirming venues and dates. We strongly advise everyone to hold off on booking flights and hotel rooms until these events have been confirmed. (We cannot be held responsible for individuals who make arrangements based on this tentative schedule.
We have been receiving numerous inquiries about the schedule so we wanted to release this tentative schedule so that teams, players, and other event organizers may use it as a basis of our plans for the 2006 season. As we confirm these events, their status will be updated on our website at www.pspevents.com from tentative to confirmed. We will at that time also be adding more information about each event, such as event schedules, recommended hotels, and directions.
Look for additional announcements to come frequently on our website as we finalize details and prepare for the upcoming year. Thanks again for everyone’s support and we are looking forward to a great 2006 season.

2006 PSP Formats
Paintball Sports Promotions is ushering in a new era in tournament paintball. After our annual meeting, we have revised, overhauled, and improved nearly everything in the PSP. We strongly feel that these changes will improve our league ten-fold and are anticipating a great 2006 season.
First off, we are excited to announce that the NXL will be opening up its ranks to other professional teams. The top teams in the world will now be competing head to head for a HUGE cash prize package at each event. These are the match-ups that everyone has been waiting for and will produce the best paintball ever seen. Now everyone will have the chance to witness the battles between such great teams as Dynasty and Trauma as well as XSV and the Russians.
Secondly, there have been several changes to the divisions and formats in the PSP that we feel will offer more teams and players the chance to play Xball with more actual play time. The divisions and formats for the 2006 season will include the following:
NXL – The top teams in the world will compete in a closed division for the chance at a HUGE cash prize package at each event. Unlike in the past, there will a tournament winner at each event.
Division 1- This division will continue to play the same format that they did in the 2005 season with the following changes:
Teams will play a round-robin format within a grouping of 5 teams. Teams within a group will play in 2 ½ hour sessions over the first 2 days. Top teams will then advance to semi finals, and continue a round-robin format with new groups.
A mercy rule will also be implemented. If at any point during the second half one team is winning by 7 or more points, the game will be called.
Rosters will be limited at 19 people total with a minimum of 10 players.
The entry fee for this division for the 2006 season will be $2650.
Division 2 – This division will also play a round-robin format in groupings of 5 teams. Games will be played with a 15 minute game clock which will stop after each point scored.
Division 2 games will be won when one team reaches a score of 7 points or 15 minutes of actual play time has expired. Teams will switch sides after every fourth game point has been scored.
Rosters for this division will be capped at a total of 18 people. Teams will be required to carry a roster with a minimum of 7 players and maximum of 15 players. No more than 4 staff members per roster will be allowed.
The entry fee for this division will remain unchanged from the 2005 season and will continue at $2350.
Division 3 – This division will also play a round-robin format in groupings of 5 teams. Games will be played with a 15 minute game clock which will stop after each point scored.
Division 3 games will be won when one team reaches a score of 5 points or 15 minutes of actual play time has expired. Teams will switch sides after every third game point has been scored.
Rosters for this division will be capped at a total of 15 people. Teams will be required to carry a roster with a minimum of 7 players and maximum of 10 players. No more than 5 staff members per roster will be allowed.
The entry fee for this division for the 2006 Season will be lowered to $2150.
The updated rules for the 2006 Season will soon be available on our website at www.pspevents.com. These rules will address issues from the 2005 Rulebook as well as contain updated rules regarding the new format.
Changes to the 5-man division as well as Young Guns will be announced later this week too.
We are very excited about these new improvements and are looking forward to a great 2006 season.
