Calendar of events 2018

Three Conferences. One League

In the beginning, it was just one conference held at one location in North Carolina. By 2008, the EPL was growing and consisted of teams that came from as far north as New York and as far south as South Carolina. In our attempt to provide the best tournament paintball experience, the Eastern Paintball League (EPL) was then divided into three conferences: the South Conference, North Conference and the Mid-Atlantic Conference. We wanted to bring the tournament to you, thus providing the best paintball experience possible which we all know that one aspect of that experience is travel.

After merging with the Global Paintball League (GPL), in 2016, the EPL Mid-Atlantic Conference is now called the FIVESTAR Series (5Star).

Each conference is comprised of paintball teams from a common geographical region. These self organized teams compete against each other at the regional level as well as the national level. Each conference is comprised of Division 6, Division 5 and Division 4 teams , with the best teams focused towards competing at the national level. The EPL is known for providing some of the best competition at the national level, from Division 5 all the way up to pro. Of course, we don’t offer a pro division at the regional level, but several semi pro and pro teams all began their paintball career with the EPL.


5STAR Series/Mid-Atlantic Conference

Outdoor Xtreme Chesapeake City (OXCC) will host five events in 2018. Centrally located between the North and South Conferences, Outdoor Xtreme Chesapeake City will host our Championship event "East Coast Cup". This facility has 6 regulation air ball fields and four permeant pits areas..  The facility is also equipped with three very large air compressors and and additional back up compressor. 

 During the 2018 season teams from the Mid-Atlantic Region will compete against teams in the popular RaceTo-2 and RaceTo-4 format. To add to the excitement teams from the North Conference will join action at the 4th event of the series. The series championship "East Coast Cup" will feature teams who will face off against teams from all three conferences of the Eastern Paintball League.
