At school level, Educators and players are readying themselves for the championship, while at MSSA level, umpires and administrators are ensuring that everything is ready for the championship in order to ensure that everyone has a pleasant experience.
MSSA has long believed that the growth of eSports as a sport is utterly dependant on a strong school championship system.
It is the learners who are going to be the next wave of players who will represent South Africa in international competition as members of the Protea team.
Already, many learners have benefitted by being included in the national teams. Few national teams have not had a component of learners. Through participation in MSSA events, no fewer than 12 learners have earned the right to participate in IeSF events.
Of course, as soon as the online school championships is completed new rankings shall be published which shall be used for thee other upcoming school events, as well as ladder matches.
