The 2011 the xball team will be called the Mersey Road Tippinators. Players this season are coming from across Nova Scotia so the most appropriate place name is that of the teams home field, Mersey Road Paintball.

"Since 2006, the AXBL has shrived to deliver the best possible paintball experience for Atlantic Canadian players", said Mike Bourque, AXBL Commissioner. "In doing so, we’ve always tried to model ourselves after Canada’s Premiere paintball league, the CXBL. With players from all four Atlantic Provinces, competition has always been the driving force behind our game and we believe this separates us from the competition."

"The Canadian AXBL’s team owners are athletes have displayed true dedication to the sport of paintball and are a welcome addition to the ranks of the CXBL", said Louie D’Alesio, CXBL Commissioner. "This will further ensure that the Xball format is the most widely played format across Canada."

When asked why the Atlantic division will be MXL and not CXBL, league spokesman Kevin Curry said, "We discussed at length whether to have CXBL or MXL division. It was decided that due to the low and dispersed population in Atlantic Canada compared to the rest of the country, MXL would be the perfect fit for the region."
