Founded in 1993, Estratego was quickly positioned as a Paintball Field Operator, an Event Promoter and a Paintball Equipment distributor in Portugal and Spain. Estratego's mission was focused on promoting and developing Paintball as a safe and fun activity. The Company always chose to concentrate on three major topics related to Paintball: Safety, Teamwork and Entertainment, taking no short cuts in maximizing the benefits for the company’s customers, staff, the community and the environment in which the company operates.
In 1996 Estratego initiated the Megacampo Paintball Field project in Sobral da Abelheira, near Mafra. Nowadays this is the biggest Paintball Theme Park in Iberia and includes a wide and comfortable safety area with Cafeteria, Paintball Store, Souvenir Shop and a children's playground. "Wild West”, “Iraq", "Bridges over the Kwai River", "Fort Apache", “Stonehenge”, "Vietnam", "Bidonball", and three well-built Sup’airball® arenas are some of the 12 scenarios available. Along with the best rental games, since 1995, Megacampo also hosted some of the most famous championships in Europe, the Megacampeonato. One of the contributions to the sport made by Estratego was the introduction of the first Nations Cup of Paintball starting in the year 2000, where teams from all over the world, composed by the best players of each country, were “battling” each other to find the champion nation. Estratego is one of the 5 founding partner companies of the Millennium Series, the longest and most professional Paintball Circuit in the world.
In Lisbon, Estratego started to broaden its business area and launched Estratego Events to supply customers who demand a wider offer in products and services, besides Paintball Rental Games. In a matter of months, Estratego Inflatables was established to meet the needs of both kids and adults, in the giant inflatable toys rental market. Estratego Inflatable was followed by Estratego Adventure. With a wide assortments of equipment such as Gladiators, Titanic, Riding Bulls, Climbing Mountains, Estratego® is now a reference in the promotion of recreational Events in these areas.
In 2002 the Lisbon headquarters grew up two fold in size, allowing space for a dedicated office area and a two-story store filled with products exclusively dedicated to Paintball, occupying roughly 150 square meters. In 2007 the company moved into a 3.000 square meters warehouse in Talaíde, just 15 minutes from Lisbon City Centre. This new warehouse was equipped with office space and a paintball store.
