Reminder: Closing date for entries to NWU MSSA Online School League - Monday, 15 July 2019.

Great interest has been shown in the NWU MSSA Online School League
With the huge interest shown by schools in the NWU MSSA Online School League to be played from the week ending Friday, 19 July 2019, Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) has extended the closing date from 1 July 2019 to Monday, 15 July 2019 in order to accommodate as many schools as possible.

The revised entry date means that the pairings shall only be loaded on Tuesday, 16 July 2019, and while it means that the first week will be shorter than normal, MSSA is convinced that the greater good is being served by extending such entry date.

As already reported, the Online League (NWU MSSA Online School League) offers prizes other than just the medals and provincial colours. The prizes include:

  • A R30,000.00 Bursary for the winner of the StreetFighter V esports title, and

  • R10,000.00 Prize money for the School for the winner of the DotA 2 esports title
By playing in the official school league, learners are able to also earn:
  • Medals for finishing in the first three places in the various game titles, and
  • School Provincial Colours, and
  • A berth in the 2020 MSSA National Team Trials.
The entry fee is R34.00 per player.

  • Clash Royale
  • CounterStrike: GO
  • DotA 2
