Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) officials are hopeful that there will be a far better result on 17 March 2018 when once again South Africa will take on Ghana in an online test match.
Since 2016, MSSA has given even greater attention to its console players and has encouraged the gamers to develop wherever possible.
Thus, MSSA is particularly proud of the BOO! Protea Esports Team that will take on Ghana on 17 March 2018.
The BOO! Protea Esports Team consists of:
- Alasdair Donaldson (VexxedPhoenix), and
- Khahliso Malape (Fakkel School of Skills), and
- Adele Janse van Rensburg (Team Manager)
Alasdair Donaldson is a true competitor. Over the years, Alasdair has added numerous provincial titles under his belt as well as that of South African National Champion for the Tekken 7 esports title. Yet, even though Alasdair is a great competitor, at MSSA's Annual General Meeting in December 20017, Alasdair was awarded MSSA's Sportsmanship Award. Alasdair's performance at IESF's 9th World Championships was a solid result in which he established himself as a major contender at international level.
Khahliso Malape too has a string of Provincial titles behind his name. Khahliso too is the current South African National Champion for the FIFA '18 esports title.
Khahliso, despite his youth, is busy establishing a name for himself on the international circuit havin already represented South Africa in an online test match against Namibia in 2017.

Date: 17 March 2018
