Auckland Paintball Cup: 7th & 8th March 2015

The Auckland Paintball Cup aims to change the way that paintball tournaments are held in New Zealand. We have opened the event up to allow competing suppliers to bring the best quality paint to the tournament, and have kept entry fees low to ensure it’s accessible to all teams.

Our open class will showcase the best teams in New Zealand in the Race to 4 format, while those teams that are newer and on a budget can play the more cost effective mechanical Race to 1 format.

International teams travelling to the event will have their first four boxes sponsored by our Gold Sponsors: Outpost 43, Paintball Direct NZ & Planet Eclipse.
