CONFERENCE CHAMPIONS

During the season, four individual paintball tournament are held within Mid-Atlantic conference or the 5Star Series. Series standings are maintained throughout the year within each conference. At the end of the fourth event for each conference, a conference champion is calculated based on the totals point earned within that specific conference. Once crowned champion, conference winners are granted FREE admission to the East Coast Cup in their endeavor to win FREE entry in the NXL World Cup held in Florida in November.

Having a total of three conferences, the EPL produces a total of 12 conference events during the season. Paintball teams are not restricted to one conference, however due to the geographic distance between each venue, most teams tend to play in conference which is closest to where they live.

CONFERENCE EAST COAST CUP

EAST COAST CUP

The ECC is the cream of the crop. The one time when teams from each conference come together at one location to determine who is the best of the best. No other league covers a larger geographical area nor does any other league have the amount of players that participate as does the EPL. To win any tournament within the EPL series is a true accomplishment, but to win the East Coast Cup is victory that demands the respect of players and teams not just at the regional level but at the national level as well.

No prior participation in any conference events is required to play in the East Coast Cup. Do not be surprised to see teams from other leagues attend, knowing that the competition is the best of the best and to see where they line up with the best of what the EPL has to offer.

EPL SERIES CHAMPIONS
