VOTED: Paintball Event Of The Year By ProPaintball.com (USA Media) - PALS World Cup Asia 2011 

The PALS Series pulled out all of the stops for the 2011 World Cup Asia event and it showed. From the location (hosted on the beautiful island of Langkawi, Malaysia), to the referees (Professional ref crew from the Millennium Series), to the after play events, guided tours, field setups and player support; PALS World Cup established a new level of paintball league professionalism. The competition was fierce, and the promoters were heavily involved in insuring a wonderful experience for all participants. PALS has done a magnificent job reaching out to major out of industry sponsors and their hard work paid off. We noted respectable tie-ins with among others, outside industry sponsors AIR ASIA and Tune Talk. These two companies stepped up their promotion and support for paintball players, literally rolling out the red carpet and then providing discounts and specialty rates for all participants. 

Pro Paintball had the opportunity to witness and participate in this event first hand. PALS World Cup Asia 2012 should be on every paintball players bucket list. This is one event you do not want to miss.
