2018 Nationals - January 27th / 28th

2018 Nationals - January 27th / 28th
Hosted by: Paintball Action Games Edmonton, AB

For the first time EVER, the CPPL will offer its most popular format at the premiere event of the season. The very first X-Division NATIONAL CHAMPION will be crowned the Saturday of the CPPL Nationals event.

The CPPL National Speedball Championships is the longest running paintball tournament in the world. Being held for the 26th consecutive season. The last weekend in January has become NATIONALS weekend. 

This year our event date is January 27th - 28th.


We will offer both X1 and X2 for the nationals. X1 teams will be pulled from the TOP8 qualifiers from the 2017 CPPL season. These 8 teams will have first rights to the limited 8 spots available in X1. The next 4 teams from CPPL 2017 will be offered a chance to grab one of the 8 spots in X2. Any spots not taken will be offered to the general public. All unclaimed spots will be up for grabs on a first come first served basis. All spots will be released to the public on January 1st.

X-Division will be held on the SATURDAY of Nationals. It will be a LONG day. If we sell out at 16 teams that will be the most EVER run. We will go late, ending around 9pm. Judges will be shifted in and out to ensure top quality and minimize fatigue. 


No other paintball event in the world has been run as many times consecutively as the CPPL National Speedball Championships.  For the 26th time in a row the best 5Player teams will play and compete for a National Championship, this time on the SUNDAY of event weekend. We will offer 3 divisions of play.  

5-1 5Player
