MSSA's membership continues to grow.
With MSSA having been founded back in 1985 by the Transvaal Wargames Association, the Eastern Transvaal Wargames Association and the Natal Wargames Association, MSSA has put many 'miles' under its belt to become the largest member based organisation for gaming in South Africa.
MSSA's first esport event was held in 1999, being the Gauteng StarCraft Championships of the same year.
MSSA's membership now consists of 77 member clubs. A few clubs just fulfill the basic criteria of 3 registered players. but the majority have memberships that would impress any sporting code.
There are clubs with memberships in excess of 300 players.
Thus, the growth now extends into almost every province in South Africa proving the MSSA has the largest 'footprint' in South Africa.
The school leagues and championships also give a very real way for sponsors to reach their target market.
There is no doubt that MSSA's success lies with its ability to adapt to changing circumstances and move with the times.
