LA Ironmen and San Jose Royalty merge to become powerhouse PSP Champions team!

Wednesday, January 15th, 2014

PRESS RELEASE:

San Jose Royalty and the Los Angeles Ironmen merge their rosters

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

San Diego, California (January 14th 2014)- San Jose Royalty and the Los Angeles Ironmen will merge their rosters for the 2014 PSP season. Royalty will cease to exist as a standalone entity and the best players on the squad will come over to the Ironmen. Members of the two teams are excited about the merger, as it will create a very strong team who will contend for the coveted PSP World Title.

 

The merger brings paintball legend Shane Pestana back into the Ironmen fold. Pestana has a storied history with the California team, first as a star player during its early years, then as captain during the late 90’s and early 2000’s, and then as the coach from 2004-2008; he guided the team to multiple World Championships during each tenure. Until this merge he had been helping Royalty as a player/coach during their assent through the divisional ranks.

 

Marcello Margott and Alex Goldman, two of the star players brought on last season for their second stint with the Ironmen, are happy to have the man back who they won their first World Titles with. Margott stated, I am ecstatic to have Shane Pestana back in the organization. He’s bringing hard working Royalty players who have great attitudes and the same work ethic as us. I think this team will quickly become a family. It’s going to take some time for the chemistry to kick in but when it does I think it will be a truly great Ironmen team. Shane is a leader by nature. He just knows how to get the best out of people so I can’t wait to start working with him again and see what we can accomplish together this time.”

 

Pestana said, “I’m ready to go, to help the Ironmen get back to where they should be, which is sitting at the top of the Champions Division. We have so many great talents on this team, so many hard working guys. Sure, it may take some time to gel, but the Ironmen will be a winning team again.”

 

Mikko Huttunen, a long time Ironmen veteran who also won titles with the team, will come on as a part of the coaching staff as well, which augments the Ironmen’s brain trust in its push back toward the podium. The Ironmen finished 5th overall during the 2013 season, and 4th at the World Cup, against one of the most competitive fields ever and this new merger proves they are dedicated to building a winning team again.

PSP Announces Major League Change: Champions & Challengers Pro Divisions for 2013

Monday, January 28th, 2013

We are about to enter a new era of professional paintball…  Are you ready?  Here’s the latest from the PSP regarding their new Pro Divisions – Champions & Challengers:

[via PSPevents.com]  - “The level of talent in the PSP Professional Division is undisputedly the fiercest in the world.  Teams from all divisions train week in and out to ultimately one day become a Professional team in the PSP.  Actually making the advancement into Pro however, has historically been too large of a move for most teams to make. 

The PSP would like to change this by putting a system into place for fresh teams to move into an even stronger Pro League.  

The PSP Professional teams will compete against each other in the 2013 PSP Dallas Open.  The top 10 teams from that event will move on to PSP’s Event #2 and play in the newly established Champions Division.  They will perform on the main field for all the glory in front of thousands of fans watching from the PaintballAccess.com webcast and the PSP grandstands.

The other Pro teams from the Dallas Open will be enlisted in a new division known as the Challengers Division.  They will be joining other teams to be named at a later date.  The group of teams in the Challengers Divisions will use the same format and rules, but play on a secondary Professional field during the prelims and will play their final match on the main field for all their fans to watch.  Starting after Event #2, the top two teams from the Challengers Division in each event will move up and compete in the PSP Champions Division for the following event.  They will be replacing the bottom 2 finishers from the previous event’s Champions Division, who will instead perform in the Challengers Division. 

This system of constant circulation will continue event by event for seasons to come.  It is now more important than ever for teams to give their all in each match – as they no longer have just one goal of winning the event – but must perform at their top in every game to make sure they do not suffer the consequence of being knocked out of the Champions Division.  Likewise, the Challengers Division teams at each event have the option to perform and move up for the following event. 

The fight begins March 14, 2013 at the PSP Dallas Open.  Team Registration for all divisions opens soon at PSPevents.com.”

A big congratulations goes out to our home team from Maylasia, Team DRX, 2012 Division One Champions in BOTH the Malaysian National Paintball League (MYNPL) and the World Paintball Players League (WPPL)!

November was crowned as DRX’s most successful month in their rich six year history as a team, a month that they will remember for as long as they live.  Two championship titles and two overall series titles were earned, and for that Dye would like to say congratulations!
