For the first time...

North West University - Vaal Triangle Campus.
There is a reason why Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) is the largest membership based organisation for gaming in South Africa is due to its continued commitment to promoting gaming at every level, and in every region of our beautiful South Africa.

Thus MSSA is proud to announce that on 2 September 2017, for the first time in the history of South Africa an official esports event will be held in Sedibeng.

Through the efforts of Joseph Matlhong, who was elected onto MSSA's Management Board in December 2017, great strides are being made to reach areas which will further increase the popularity and representivity of gaming in general.
The growth of gaming is utterly dependent upon those who put their passion before personal reward and offer the advantages that the games offer to the population as a whole.


The revised Calendar of Events is thus:
