The new year is well underway and this promises to be a big year for Almost Famous Paintball and the AFPL. On January 19, 2014, the AFPL Walk On Nation 2013 series wrapped up, with San Diego’s Goodfellas taking the series championship title. Fun fact: The Goodfellas have the distinction of being the most decorated team in the AFPL — possessing nothing short of 12 A
FPL trophies! While the Goodfellas, were the 2013 series champions, it was StiCCY Bandits — a motley crew of members from Gnar Kill and some parking lot pros, that took first place at this last event.
But onto the 2014 events! This year, the level of competition at the AFPL Chaos Ball will continue to intensify. We’ll see the return of Chaos Ball series champs, STR8 Shooters, along with Goodfellas, SD Kings, Strategy, Riverside Optimistic, Blitz and many more. The first event in the 2014 AFPL Chaos Ball Series will take place on March 2, 2014 at Camp Pendleton Paintball Park.
2014 will also mark the second year that we head north to the beautiful Air Warriors Paintball Park in Lemoore, California for AFPL Walk On Nation Cen Cal on April 21, 2014. If you’re looking for a cool road trip, beautiful grass, and a perfectly set up field, you’ve got to check out this event.
In addition, there will be plenty of REDZONE events throughout paintball fields in SoCal. It’s unanimous – the players love this format. If you haven’t had a chance to try out REDZONE, toss out everything you knew about x-ball and check out our calendar to look for the next available date.
If you’re just exploring what the AFPL is about, this is what you need to know. The AFPL is all about maximizing the tournament paintball player experience — both on the field and after you’ve already gone home. All our events feature heavy media coverage, include match videos. This year, we welcome Mike “Chrono 300” Wise and Justin “Spankz” Spangler as commentators. These industry veterans provide entertaining yet informative commentary to your match videos. Check out one of their videos here: AFPL WON #7 Finals STiCcy Bandits vs. San Diego Kings
At the AFPL, you don’t have to be a pro to be treated like a pro. We are all ALMOST FAMOUS.
So stick around and stay tuned. 2014 is gonna be a great year for paintball and if you are from out of the state, what better place to travel to an event than lovely San Diego, CA?
