The Ultimate Paintball League (UPL) is gearing up for another great year of tournament paintball and would like to announce that it will be changing its name to the United Paintball League effective immediately. The new name is in response to the union of Action Paintball Events (APE) and the UPL. This merger brings the APE (which is known for running successful local events in Southern California) under the UPL umbrella of events. The United Paintball League - UPL (UPL) will now run local as well as regional events.

The United Paintball League is pleased to announce that paintball veteran and 6 time World Champion Rich Telford - XSV Paintball will be the new Ultimate Referee and Head of Player Relations for the league. The UPL looks forward to Rich’s vast wealth of knowledge and his experiences with paintball to help the league in continuing its goal of providing the best experience for the players.

Recently we announced that Empire Paintball and Planet Eclipse have both signed on as Platinum sponsors of the United Paintball League. Empire and Planet Eclipse will be attending all of the regional UPL events with a tech/retail booth as well as providing prize packages for the series champions.
