On 11 July 2015 the MWEB High School Team eSports SA will take on the Austrian High School Team for FIFA '15 in an online international test match.
The South African team shall play the international test match from the BNKR Gaming Lounge, cnr of Duncan and Mandela Streets, Witbank. The test match shall start at 18H00.
This test match represents a number of firsts for South Africa, and South African gaming, being:
- This is the first full accredited School's test match accredited by the IeSF,
- This is the first time that South Africa will com,pete in an online test match against Austria,
- This is the first eSports test match in which the MSSA will be involving a school team, and
- This is the first time that a female player will officially represent South Africa in FIFA '15.
The MSSA has a great deal of confidence in the abilities of the team. Coincidentally the entire team hails from Witbank and is drawn from the strongest High School players that South Africa has to offer.
The players are:
Kyle is the undisputed South African National Champion having won the national Championships in two consecutive years. Kyle too also earned his senior Protea Colours when he was selected to represent South Africa in a test match against Zimbabwe. Needless to say, Kyle cruised through the test match and demolished his opposition giving South Africa a well deserved 2 - 0 victory.
Joline was awarded her Mpumulanga Colours at the 2015 MWEB Mpumulanga Championships in May 2015. Without doubt, Joline is the best female FIFA '15 gamer in South Africa. Joline too is currently the only player that has finished a game against Kyle Turnbull in an official competition game with only a one goal difference (3 - 2) in the past two years.
Bonga has an impressive record in the MWEB online S A Schools Championships as well as at a couple of Provincial LAN Championships. Bonga has consistently finished in the medals, always on the heels of the likes of Kyle Turnbull. It is the likes of Bonga that continually push the standard of play forward through Bonga's dedication and perseverance.
