The site will also be handling registrations for the event.
Under current plans, contestants will be equipped with Airsoft guns, ammo and touch-sensitive body armour for the three-day event, set to take place this winter over a three-day period, with applicants competing for 12 hours each day and then camping for the night. Food, camping gear and equipment will be provided, while external paramedics, doctors and health and safety experts will be on hand in case they are required.
