The annual Paraclete XP Indoor Championship has been a part of the NSL News event coverage since this event was created in 2008.
The indoor competition has been taking place in Raeford at the beginning of February, while the outdoor event has always been scheduled for mid March in DeLand, close to the St. Patrick's Day, which gave the Shamrock Showdown its event name. Many teams from overseas have attended the outdoor competition, while the indoor meet was mostly a US 4way affair before teams from France began to visit for the 8way competition.

NMP-PCH Hayabusa is the unofficial indoor world champion after winning the World Challenge three consecutive times in 2011, 2012 and 2013. The Belgian national team also missed the 4way outdoor gold medals at the Mondial Dubai 2012 only by an inch and is eager to take the 1st place in Prostejov next year.
Hayabusa has confirmed the Paraclete XP double header in the first week of March and will try to win both events for the first time. The first place at the Paraclete XP Outdoor Championship will guarantee the gold medals at the world meet - at least according to the records and the history books...
