Chicago Open

Chicago-Open

Although they placed in the top 4 at every PSP event last year, Edmonton Impact had not actually won a PSP event since the March 2010 Phoenix Open four years ago.   Several unexpected roster changes in the off-season left many wondering if Edmonton Impact would continue to be a top performing team, or would need a season to re-group.  The roster changes, the relentless Chicago weather, the history of coming so close but not securing the win – nothing could hold Edmonton Impact back from conquering Houston Heat in the finals to win the 2014 PSP Chicago Open.  Congratulations to a very deserving team on a highly anticipated victory!

Moscow Art Chaos and Houston VcK were able to top the Challengers Division and are moving up to the Professional Champions Division starting with the West Coast Open in Riverside, California August 8 – 10, 2014.  On the flip side, proving no one is safe from relegation, 2013 World Cup Champions San Antonio X-Factor as well as Chicago Aftershock will be relegated down to the Pro Challengers Division for the PSP West Coast Open.  Challenger teams must finish in the top two at the PSP West Coast Open to be eligible to compete in the PSP Champions Division at World Cup.

The stakes are just as high for the Pro Champions in the West Coast Open however as the bottom two finishers in their division at the West Coast Open will not be able to compete in the Champions Division at World Cup.  You can watch the drama unfold from the grandstands at the Riverside event August 8 – 10 or live online through PaintballAccess.com’s webcast.

180 teams from around the world competed in nine divisions of the PSP Chicago Open at CPX Sports Park in Joliet, Illinois last weekend.  We would like to thank the staff of CPX Sports Park, our wonderful sponsors and vendors, the tireless efforts from our crew, referees and staff as well as the many fans who braved the weather to watch the best paintball teams in the world compete against each other.  We look forward to seeing each of you at the upcoming PSP West Coast Open held in Riverside, California August 8 – 10, 2014!
