Canada’s Own Badlands, Signs Stockholm Joy Division

For the past 5 years, Badlands has arguably had the most successful stable of professional paintball teams in the game.

San Diego Dynasty and LA Infamous have undeniably been two of the most successful teams in the USA in recent years. Edmonton Impact is already the most successful team to ever come out of Canada. All three of these teams have enjoyed amazing results and it seemed there was no obvious way that Badlands could actually improve on the win-ratio their sponsored teams have delivered to-date…. until now.

In a move that will shock the Paintball Industry, Badlands has now signed a deal with Stockholm Joy Division, the most successful team ever to come out of Europe and the only European team to win a NPPL event on US soil.

The deal, for an undisclosed sum, includes a visit to Canada by Joy Division as part of their 2008 Five-Stop World Tour. This visit, scheduled for late August 2008, will be part of Badlands 20th year Anniversary celebrations.

Badlands representative Owen Ronayne said of their new signing:
“Joy Division are one of the most popular and respected teams in Paintball. I’ve been a big fan for 15 years, so signing them into the Badlands stable is very exciting. We strive for excellence, so sponsoring the greatest pro teams in Europe, the US and, of course, Canada, is a proud moment for us. The Joy guys are also personal friends and I can’t wait for them to come to Canada. They will be eager to help Canadian players improve their game, so watch our website for details of their visit. Lock up your daughters though, and leave your girlfriends at home. You have been warned!!”

Joy Captain Magued Idris confirmed their latest sponsor:
“When Owen went to Badlands, we went with him. It’s as simple as that. He has looked after us for years and is practically a member of our team.

There is no doubt Badlands is a great fit for us. It is one of the coolest companies in the game. A Badlands Sponsorship for a Pro team is a sure indication that you at the top. It’s a very select club and we are proud to be members. I’m definitely looking forward to the Canadian stop on our World Tour this year and seeing if the weather there is really as bad as Owen says it is….”

Looking Back On Malaga

“PAINTBALL STARTS HERE“

And what a blast of a start it was! The Millennium proved again that their slogan is their mission.

The kick-off event of the Millennium 2008 season returned back to the wonderful beaches of Malaga/Spain in truly big style. A perfect scenery combined with the beautiful Spanish weather gave stage to one of the best Millennium events ever. At least this was the opinion of players and vendors from all over the Paintball world („This is better than everything else we know in the States“ said Ryan Greenspan from DYNASTY, guesting for SPL event winner INSTINCT).

But the event also attracted a lot of people from the „real“ world: The boardwalk was crowded all weekend with tourists and players watching the games together. According to the local police a total of nearly 30000 people passed through the event during the weekend, with a peak of nearly 15000 people on Sunday. Many of them had learned about the tournament through the many posters and flyers spread all across the city in advance.

Or they had read about it in one of the newspapers publishing big articles or had seen the TV coverage: Two national TV stations (‚Antena 3‘ and ‚Tele5‘) as well as three local stations (including ‚Canal Andalusia‘) broadcasted it on the sports section. 4 nationwide newspapers (‚El Mundo‘, ‚El Pais‘, ‚La Marca‘, ‚ABC‘) plus 5 (!) regional newspapers made sure that everybody in Spain is now aware of what Paintball and the Millennium is all about.

It was a win/win situation for everyone as also the city was very happy: Four hotels were fully booked with Paintball players – and this in the middle of the the off season! Many bars and restaurants were so crowded in the evening that the only thing you could see over the lines of players and vendors waiting for their tables was the big smile of the owner of the place!

Thanks to everybody for making this happen – next stop: London Basildon for the Campaign Cup. Let’s do it again!
