After the paintball economy took a major hit a few years ago, all tournament players from rookie to pro level began having a hard time obtaining any form of sponsorship. With a number of companies closing up shop recently, even professional paintball organizations are striking out trying to find an industry member to support them. To help combat the issue, Empire Paintball is forming an initiative that makes sponsorship available to teams of any classification.
With their "Get Sponsored Like a Pro" program, Empire is allowing both speedball and woodsball teams the chance to submit applications to become an official Empire team for the 2012 season. They've released a video featuring Nicky Cuba, Ryan Greenspan and Todd Martinez to handle the details. Check it out below.
