On May 12th, 2020 the National Xball League announced that the professional divisions will be broken up into 3 regional conferences, while the lower divisions will be able to choose. With this announcement, they also stated that the upcoming NXL Chicago event is now canceled due to the Covid19 situation. We can expect that there will be regional events now with the professional teams only playing those teams in their regions.
THE NXL STATEMENT
Introducing the 2020
National Xball League
Regional Conference System
As you all unfortunately know, the 2020 NXL season was abruptly interrupted due to the outbreak of the Covid-19 virus. With the cancellation of the Texas Open (May 1-3), Richmond Open (June 26-28), and Chicago Open (September 11-13), we knew an alternate plan was necessary to help keep the season afloat so that we can #PlayPaintball.
Leading up to the World Cup event, we will be replacing our canceled tournaments with (3) smaller capacity Regional Conference events (Dates TBD) held in California, Texas, and the East Coast (Location TBD). These Conferences will feature a group of professional teams competing at each, the teams are as followed :
Seattle Uprising- Professional Paintball team
Baltimore Revo Paintball Team
Team NRG Elite - Virginia
Divisional teams will have the ability to compete in ANY Regional Conference event they prefer; if multiple are played, the highest score will be applied to the team and used for World Cup / Overall Season Ranking.
We are so excited to finally get back to the events, regardless if they are smaller. We look forward to seeing all of our players out there competing again. We will release more information as it comes in! Thank you everyone, and stay safe.
