March 30, 2008 National Professional Paintball League Tour Stop - HB. Often the launch of the NPPL begins in Huntington Beach, as part of the paintball league national tour that culminates in a huge play-off, often in San Diego's Qualcomm Stadium. (see nppl.tv for confirmation). The registration sells out fast but guests can watch for free. A vendor's showcase at Pier Plaza, paintball league play on the beach and activities make this one of the top-attended sporting events annually. 220 top paintball teams from around the world compete on six fields south of Pier Plaza and Huntington Beach Pier. Based on the traditional format of Capture the Flag, the Super 7 format matches two seven-man teams against each other on a field about the size of a tennis court with a number of inflated shapes that offer some cover to the players. Each game lasts a maximum of 7 minutes and the team eliminating the other by capturing their flag wins the entire match. TV celebrities expected for weekend. Grandstand seats can be purchased. Time: 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets: nppl.tv
