Buffalo Grove, Ill. (July 28, 2006) ? Tippmann Sports is pleased to announce a strategic alliance with Special Ops Paintball. The new relationship will include several collaborative marketing programs as well as future product initiatives. Working together, the two companies will be ideally positioned to bring an unmatched breadth of specialized products and services to woodsball players around the world.
Through collaborative marketing programs, Tippmann and Special Ops will intensify their focus on bringing new players to the game and keeping them intrigued, entertained and well equipped. One of the ways this will take shape is through Tippmann?s promotion of Special Ops? extensive Brigade and Game Locator programs. The Brigade is a revolutionary online membership program players can join at no cost to earn rewards for how often they play paintball, journal their play, upload pictures and communicate with other players, just to name a few features. The Game Locator allows Brigade members to post opportunities to play and automatically e-mails other Brigade members within 100 miles of the posted game. Both the Brigade and Game Locator programs will be accessible though the Tippmann Sports Web site in the coming months. In addition, Tippmann has become the presenting sponsor of the SPPL. The SPPL gives ten-man scenario teams the opportunity to compete in the newly developed ?scenario challenge? format which combines the intrigue of scenario play with the fast pace of capture the flag. There are five qualifying events with the finals scheduled for later this year.
According to Special Ops co-founder, Jayson Orvis, ?The Spec Ops team has dedicated the last three years to advancing the sport of woods paintball through cutting-edge products and a grassroots, first-of-a-kind woodsball community. Now, we?re thrilled to see the massive power of Tippmann line up behind this vision. We love this sport and we look forward to cranking up the intensity of the woods paintball experience even more.?
