Some well-known UK esports organisations are swapping their digital weapons for actual paintball guns in a unique tournament which is taking place right now (12pm, August 28th 2021).

UK gaming energy drink brand, Beyond NRG, has created a new league for esports teams to compete physically – The Beyond NRG UK Paintball Open, hosted by CPPS.

The driving force behind this is to bring together the biggest names in UK esports for a day out of their traditional gaming studios.

The selection of teams competing in the Paintball Open wouldn’t naturally meet in-game, due to competing in different titles and leagues. So this exclusive invite-only tournament series allows esports teams to compete 5v5 IRL.

“We at Beyond have huge plans for this for this series! Eventually, we will make a ‘world’ series, inviting teams like Faze, Fnatic, G2, Astralis etc to send a team over to compete in an esports-only IRL league!”

Billy Webb, Beyond NRG

You can catch all the action live on Twitch at 12pm today (Saturday 28th August 2021) by heading to https://www.twitch.tv/cppspaintball.

Beyond NRG CEO, Billy Webb said: “Paintball has always been a sport that I have loved to play since the age of seven, and once representing Team GB. Tournament paintball has a very similar tactic and format as games like CSGO. Paintball is all about zone control and making game-winning moves.

“We at Beyond have huge plans for this for this series! Eventually, we will make a ‘world’ series, inviting teams like Faze, Fnatic, G2, Astralis etc to send a team over to compete in an esports only IRL league!”

The CPPS is a UK tournament paintball venue, and partners of Beyond NRG. More information on tournament paintball can be found here: https://youtu.be/OUII_ND_NV0

The eight teams taking part are as follows:

  • Beyond – Staff 
  • Cherry Twisted – Influencers
  • Lemon Sherbeted – Influencers 
  • Rize – Partner 
  • Clique – Partner 
  • Excel – Partner 
  • Endpoint – Partner 
  • The Goose House – Partner 

The news comes after Beyond NRG took their newest energy drink flavour – Space Rocks – and flew six of their new tubs into space, claiming the title of ‘first ever gaming energy drink sent into space’.

After the 8,768 seconds long journey that took them 33,190m above earth, they began a slow decent back down to solid ground, only to be scooped up and popped on the internet, ready for six lucky fans to come along and bag themselves a piece of history.

Two months ago, Beyond NRG became the UK’s most widely distributed gaming energy drink after striking a deal with wellness retailer Holland & Barrett.
