Magnum USA Secures High-Profile Paintball Sponsorships
MODESTO, CA - Magnum USA, the leader in tactical and uniform footwear, has secured sponsorship with nationally-recognized paintball team, "Blue's Crew", and popular scenario paintball game promoter, Black Cat Productions.
Magnum USA recognizes the fast-growing sport of paintball and acknowledges the popularity of Magnum boots among participants. Both recreational and scenario players value the unsurpassed quality, fit and performance of Magnum boots, making Magnum their brand of choice. Magnum boots are lightweight and supportive, making them ideal for running. Out-of-the-box comfort, athletic styling and durability make Magnum boots a great fit for the sport of paintball.
Since Sporting Goods Management Association (SGMA) International started tracking paintball participation in 1998, there has been a steady upward climb - 5.923 million participants in 1998; 6.364 million participants in 1999; 7.121 million participants in 2000; and 7.678 participants in 2001. This equates to a 29.6% increase in overall participation from 1998 to 2001. The number of frequent (15+ days per year) participants also increased from 793,000 in 1998 to 1.414 million in 2001 - a 78% increase.

Blue's Crew is a 30 member strong scenario game team led by Michael "Blue" Hanse, who is hailed in the industry as the most nationally prominent paintballer. Blue owns and operates E.M.R. Paintball Park in New Milford, PA. The traveling East-coast team is fully sponsored for guns, paint, uniforms, protective gear and even travel accommodations. Blue's Crew commands a strong presence at the events in which they participate, not dressed in typical camouflage attire, but in solid blue from head to toe. All team members of Blue's Crew will exclusively wear Magnum boots at all sponsored events, in addition to bearing the Magnum logo on their uniform sleeve.
Black Cat Paintball Productions brings the very best that scenario game playing has to offer to paintball players across the country. With unique locations, fresh new storylines, and creative, technologically-advanced props that are both realistic and entertaining, Black Cat Productions creates an unsurpassed atmosphere of realism. Exemplifying Black Cat's uniqueness was the recent highly-anticipated scenario game held at an abandoned prison. Magnum USA will provide footwear to be distributed as event prizes, and will maintain a strong brand presence at all Black Cat Productions events.
