Confirmed: NXL Has no Plans for Limited Paint Format, DMG Team Sale False, No Major Event in Texas, Per NXL Executives.
Iconic Paintball rarely focuses on news, but with all the rumors and hearsay swirling around the NXL and limited paint formats, it is important to set the story straight. The National Xball League will not be introducing a limited paint format in any capacity for the 2022 season. According to Tom Cole, the President of the NXL; "The NXL U.S Circuit has no plans currently to transition to a limited paint format in the 2022 season and will continue with the format used in the previous year"
Furthermore, in regards to other rumors floating about social media regarding the addition of another major event, the sale of Sacramento DMG, and an event in Texas, those are false. According to the NXL Marketing Director Matt Engles, "The NXL plans to hold a six event season in 2022, similar to the year prior that will feature four Major Events, and two Open Events. We will be announcing this official list of dates on Tuesday, December 7th at 2pm EST. Stay tuned for more updated on NXLPaintball.com and the @nxlpaintball social media channels!"
Although some have reported the reduction in paintball quantities per case. HK Army, one of the nations leading paint manufacturers and sellers, has confirmed no plans of moving away from 2000 count boxes per HK Army Head of Sales, Brandon Short. We are awaiting confirmation from other major paint manufacturers at this time.
