Ekasi Esports is at the core of community development and ensuring that scarce skills are catered for when it comes to Esports in the rural and township areas.
To achieve gaming skills that meets international level, esports gamers needs to be exposed to high speed internet connectivity to allow online participation, they require computers that are spec'd and an ecosystem that promotes skills transfer through gaming practises.
The team is currently having unspec'd computers, a line that has 10mb which is too slow for online participation and the team trains once a week.
The team has a female CS:GO team and a professional male team with such constraints Ekasi Esports is in talks with sponsors and partners to improve their conditions and be able to build more teams that will have a training platform and facilities.
The team in preparing itself to host regional championships for township teams and schools has embarked on a journey to invite all the esports enthusiasts and gamers to be part of a gaming experience.
The team manager, Mpho Tladi, emphasizes that the 1st Soweto LAN Experience is a capability test to ensure that the club will be able to host a critical event like regional championships. In order to run a Regional Championships a club needs to check the logistics behind such a prestige event, thus will assist organisers to be in a better position to host and comply with all MSSA's rules and regulations.
Ekasi Esports is sending out an open invitation to sponsors, donors to come on board and part take on the event.
The 1st Soweto LAN Experience will be hosted on the 29th - 30th September 2017, at Dube Boxing Club and Community Centre, Corner 856 Sandile StreetMpho Tladi can be contacted on: firstname.lastname@example.org
