Results: 16th Mpumulanga Championships

Waiting in anticipation.
Mind Sports South Africa's 16th Mpumulanga Championships held on 27 and 28 May 2017 was once again hosted by HTS Witbank and was again a success. This is the fourth consecutive year that HTS Witbank  has hosted such championship. The school is thus fast gaining a reputation for becoming the center for gaming in Mpumulanga.


Special thanks must be extended to all the administrators, umpires, participants and spectators for making a truly memorable event.

The championship attracted players from Eastern Cape, Free State, Gauteng,  Mpumulanga, North  West,  and Western Cape, as players battled it out to earn the title of Mpumulanga Champion in the various games on offer, as well as the right to fight for a place in the 2017 National Team Trials that will ultimately deliver a team to the IeSF's 2017 9th World Championships in Busan from 8 to 12 November 2017, as well as the other events in which South Africa shall compete.

Now that MSSA has a channel on Tuluntulu, much of the footage filmed at such 16th Mpumulanga Championships will be screened on such channel.

History again was made at MSSA's 16th Mpumulanga Championships when Amoné Bekker (of Team Valkyrie) became the first female to earn Eastern Cape Provincial Colours for esports. 

Well done Amoné, we are all proud of you.
