Nicky Cuba Hosting Live Webcast
Don’t miss a minute of the action from this weekend’s US Paintball League Surf City Open. Every game on Center Court Friday, Saturday and Sunday will be brought to you live hosted by Professional Paintball’s very own Nicky Cuba. For only $3.00 per day (or $7.00 for all three days) you can watch the Center Court action live from the beach and enjoy Nicky’s commentary and interviews with your favorite pro players.

Rusty Glaze MCs the Center Court Live Show
One of Southern California’s favorite pro players, Rusty Glaze of Los Angeles Infamous, will be switching things up in Huntington Beach. Instead of playing in front of thousands of fans on Center Court, he will be MCing every game in front of thousands of fans on Center Court. Those who purchase VIP passes will have a chance to sit with Rusty and add some commentary of their own.

Welcome to the VIP
For $45 per day, you can enjoy covered seating atop the Center Court grandstands, overlooking all the weekend’s hottest games with the ocean in the background as you enjoy an adult beverage with your favorite pro players. Hosted by the Pro Players, the VIP Deck will include the commentary booth for the webcast and live Center Court show – so don’t be surprised if you get asked to sit in and say a few words to your friends at home through the webcast. Tickets may be purchased at the Registration tent on-site. Grandstand passes are available also at the Registration tent for $10 per day or $15 for the weekend.

Player Party with Pros Guest Bartending
The first player party of the weekend will be Friday night at Beachfront bar and grill with drink specials from 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm. Beachfront is located at Main and Olive just across the street from Starbucks. Every half-hour from 8:00 – 11:00, a new set of 2 professional players will take over as bartenders. Having played all their prelim games during the day, they will be ready to unwind and have a good time. If you’re over 21, join us at Beachfront Friday night for drink specials and much more!

Reffing brought to you by the Pros
Could care less about the VIP and Player Parties because you plan on making it to Sunday? Then let’s talk reffing. After hand picking some of the most qualified professional referees out there to ref Center Court, many pro players will also be serving the cause by reffing every game on the Spyder and Eclipse field all weekend long.

Dynasty reps KEE

Dynasty has dropped JT as their major sponsor and have switched to KEE Action Sports. Dynasty will be dressed head to toe in Empire gear; pants, jersey, gloves, pads, and E’Vents goggles. They will also be shooting RPS paintballs and be using the Empire Prophecy loader. The team will make their Kee sponsor debut at PSP Phoenix this weekend, Feb. 20-22.

“Dynasty’s success on and off the field make them a perfect fit for Empire and RPS Paintballs, with all three entities being leaders in their respective categories,” said Vice President of Marketing, Jason A. Taitano. Alex Fraige, Dynasty’s Captain, said,” We’re stoked to join the Empire and RPS Team. They produce great products, have the best paint, and are a great partner for us to continue our success.”
