NOTTINGHAM, England (Feb. 6, 2007) — Players for the London Tigers, a Luxfer-sponsored paintball team, have been in intensive training for their first game in the international Millennium Series tournament scheduled for April 7–9 in Toulouse, France.
Based in Kent, the London Tigers are a professional team who have the advantage of using Luxfer’s lightweight full-wrap carbon composite paintball cylinders as part of their standard equipment.
Veronique McKellican, Luxfer Gas Cylinders international marketing manager, said: "As silver-level sponsors of the Millennium Series and the only cylinder manufacturer in the world directly involved with paintball as a sport, we at Luxfer are delighted to offer our continued support. We wish the London Tigers great success throughout the new season."
Luxfer’s sponsorship of the team is part of the company’s paintball “Target Safety” campaign, specifically designed to provide information on safe, responsible paintball play, as well as proper cylinder operation, maintenance, transportation and inspection. The campaign was launched in 2004.
