The 2021 l Iron City Classic will be held at the famous Urban Assault Paintball field in Pittsburgh, PA on July 30 – August 1st, 2021. The Iron City Classic is a throwback NPPL style paintball tournament that pays homage to the sport’s history by utilizing hyperball, mounds, hybrid and woods fields throughout the event. 10 man is hosted Saturday and Sunday.
The Iron City Classic was born out of the desire to reinvigorate a style of play that shaped our current version of paintball. While not completely old-school and not completely new, we are seeking to present a competitive version of paintball where players from all generations can compete and, most importantly, enjoy our sport.

FEATURING FOUR CLASSIC FIELD TYPES –
Newly Redesigned Fields for 2021
The all important woodsball - the foundation and starting point for many players. This field contains bunkers constructed of branches, logs, earthen mounds and man made structures. Careful field walking, intense planning and a bit of sneakiness will render victory on this layout.
Simple in design and layout, but difficult to master. Many techniques can be used on this type of field, but unrelenting aggression is the most frequently chosen technique. This old school field has some tricks, don’t let it turn on you...
This is where speedball got its start - intense battles from beginning to end are the hallmark of this field. Unified aggression wins the day, with teamwork being a key part to breaking up a stand off, and punching through a defense...coordination is the fundamental skill needed to win on Hyperpipe.
The ultimate mash-up of bunker styles and terrain features, the Hybrid Field is the great equalizer. No single strategy will win on this field, you will need a combination of speed, intelligence, and communication to be successful and take ground.

2021 EVENT IN HONOR OF – TIM MONTRESSOR
Life Long Paintball Player & Sports Enthusiast
What Tim had to say about the goal of the Iron City Classic:
…I have been playing paintball for as long as I can remember. I have been the little kid standing on the sidelines of the 10 man field watching the pros in awe, and I’ve also been the seasoned player hoisting the championship trophies.
It is my hope that the Iron City Classic, and other events like it, can serve to ignite the same life long passion for a new generation of players, as well as fan the flames of the embers burning in the hearts and chests of grizzled veterans around the world.
As an organization, we cannot thank the players and sponsors that have supported the vision of growing Classic paintball enough. Without the endless support, our dream could not have become reality.
