Thanks to all who responded to our poll, it was great to receive such good and usefull feed back and help us make the right decision on next season for all.
For 2017, the Millennium will stay at 4 events. It was clear to us that although a majority of teams would like 5 events in an ideal world, the overwhelming consensus was that it needed at least one more season before returning to a 5 event series in the current economic climate.
In order to help everyone plan we are pleased to announce our dates today, please see below. Exact details on venues will be announced over the next few weeks, we can also announce there will be a new and exciting venue for the UK.
We have plenty of new and exciting news coming, so watch this space.
Once again we thank all for your support and input to help make the Millennium the only place to be in 2017!14680554_1279585655405025_7549501508923899622_n.jpg

Thanks for sharing this information @red dragon

Looking forwarding playing the Millennium next year!!!..

One question... Is there a reason why Spain was removed from one of the hosting countries for the Millennium?, just wondering... I think the event in Barcelona was quite good (IMHO)... Was it too expensive? not many teams showed up?

It's nice to see that a new venue is being used in the UK this year, could be a nice change.

Spain was a wonderful location, lots of fun, but had 2 issues at least in my eyes.

The stands were on the short side of the pro field, which isn't a HUGE problem, but limited the number of folks who could see.

The firearm BS. That was such an absolute nightmare for teams leaving. It was beyond dumb.

It also seems like the Med Cup and the Campaign cup are moved up a week each? Maybe I'm wrong though.

MILLENNIUM CPL 2017 - A NEW ERA OF WORLD CLASS COMPETITIVE PAINTBALL BEGINS!

In 2017 we present a new “Ultra-Competitive” system in Champions Paintball League! We have taken this step in order to put a system in place for fresh teams to move into an even stronger Champions League.
During Mediterranean Cup in 2017, 20 Millennium Professional teams will compete against each other. Why the change?
By increasing to 20 teams they will play in divisions of 5, so all the teams will play 4 matches instead of 3 in Qualifying rounds, introducing more competition and more variety of teams played.

The top 10 teams from that event will move on to Millennium Event #2 and play in CPL. The other 10 teams from Mediterranean Cup will compete in the newly established division - CPL Challenger, with the same format and rules.
Based on the results of event #2, the relegation/promotion system will be applied. The bottom 2 teams of CPL will play a game against the top 2 teams of CPL Challenger in order to decide if a team gets promoted or relegated (Play Off).

This system of constant circulation will continue event by event for seasons to come. It is now more important than ever for teams to give their all in each match – as they no longer have just one goal of winning the event – but must perform at their top in every game to make sure they do not suffer the consequence of being knocked out of the CPL. Likewise, the CPL Challenger teams at each event have the option to perform and move up for the following event.
