The various events held by Mind Sports South Africa.

Esports athletes in action.
Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) runs a plethora of events during each and every year.

You would think that the volunteers involved would suffer some sort of burn-out as their activities dwarf those of any other body in South Africa.

In 2018, MSSA held no fewer than 30 events since  the last IESF World Championships in Busan in 2017.

This is phenomenal!

Not  only that when you consider the structure of MSSA events, you will realise the amount of preparation that these events must take, being:
