Paintball Sports Promotions Releases The 2009 World Cup Field Layout

PSP Events proudly presents THE event of the year, the 2009 World Cup. The largest professional paintball tournament on the planet will debut at a new location this year, Fantasy of Flight, October 7th – 11th.

Home to over 40 rare and vintage aircraft, Fantasy of Flight is the world’s greatest aviation attraction. The facility offers a variety of guided tours including visits to their working restoration and maintenance areas. You can climb inside the cockpit of a Corsair fighter for a battle over the Pacific and then take a spin on their state-of-the-art hang glide simulator in the Fun with Flight area.

Located in Polk City, FL, Fantasy of Flight is conveniently located between the Orlando International Airport and the Tampa International Airport. Servicing over 52 million passengers a year with over 1,000 arrivals and departures daily, the two airports offer a multitude of flight options for everyone traveling to the event.

The World Cup is the crown jewel of tournament paintball; more players, more spectators, more vendors, more buzz, more significance than any other event in the industry. The event also hosts the year’s largest tradeshow where everyone that’s anyone comes to debut their latest and greatest gear for the upcoming season. It is the must attend event of the year for teams and paintball enthusiasts around the globe.

Welt Factory, a New Face of Paintball Design

While attending the PSP World Cup 2008 and walking around the vendors area it was obvious that there were some newer companies attending and one that caught the eye of myself and I am sure many others at the event was Welt Factory. With their own unique clothing designs and offering two chances to win an Planet Eclipse Infamous SL-74 with each t-shirt purchase it wasn’t hard to see why they were getting paintballers attention. I got to sit down and talk to Steve Nelson as to why Welt Factory was formed.

Due to the lack of design creativity in the paintball segment, Jeremy( AKA Wuba & fellow business partner) and I decided to use our backgrounds in marketing and design to launch a brand that paintballers and non paintballers alike could wear out on the field, to school, out at a bar, or just anywhere they wanted to show their love for the game. We were tired of seeing the same old repeating prints/patterns being ripped off from the big name fashion giants and being used on headbands, shirts, etc. We thought this form of creativity and design was something this sport DID NOT NEED. So, we stepped up and took the responsibility in giving the masses what they craved and wanted, fresh to death designs, colors, and overall swagger. The quality is in the shirts we hand pick. They are ringspun, enzyme washed tees that are the softest you will ever feel, and will not ever shrink. Thats why we adapted the motto: Putting Comfort In Pain. It has been a hard but very rewarding job ever since.

Take a look at the TechPB video from PSP World Cup 2008

Here are some of the designs that you can get from Welt Factory

2008 PSP World Cup Webcast

Can the Ironmen, the current NXL champions, fight their way to another title or will Dynasty continue dominating and take their third win of the year?

Can the Red Legion regain the form and fire that lead them to a title in 2006, or will their offense continue to sputter as it has in the first four events? Can Tampa repeat their performance in Chicago this year, where they destroyed the field and took their first pro win in only the third event of their first pro season?  Will Infamous be able to summon the heart and drive they displayed to win Phoenix in dramatic fashion, coming from behind with injured and sick players on the brink of defeat, or will their inconsistency haunt them?

With the most competitive cast of teams and players the NXL has ever fielded, and with every team sharpened, skills and talent honed for this moment, ready to battle for glory, respect, and 25 thousand dollars, all these questions will be answered and you can now watch all the action and drama unfold in your living room.
