Call for candidates for IESF's Referee Course.

Johan van Breda (ZAG Academy) in action at MSSA's National Championships.
International Esports Federation (IESF) has a vision to standardise esports and its ecosystem in which it finds itself. As such IESF established an ‘International Referee system’. Supported by 

Busan IT Industry Promotion Agency (BIPA), IESF has achieved great  strides in this arena and has been able to, as a result, add value to esports championships world-wide.

In 2016 Mind Sports South Africa's (MSSA) candidate (Thomas Brown)  participated in the first international referee workshop in Yinchuan on 12 May 2016. Thomas went on to be the first South African to referee a major esports event in Beijing in the Olympic Tennis Stadium.


Thus International Esports Federation (IESF) have requested its member federations to submit candidates for its 2020 Referee Training Course to be held from 24 to 28 February 2020 in Busan, Korea.

The curriculum has been developed by IESF together with game publishers in an effort to ensure that it meets the highest standards. 

Candidates for IESF’s International Esports Referee program are nominated by member federations until Wednesday, February 12th (KST).  Successful candidates will be announced on Friday, February 14th (KST) by IESF.

Thus all Registered Players who are currently qualified as MSSA umpires who are willing to be considered for selection must provide the following to the Board by 10 February 2020:
  1. Number of national championships refereed by the candidate, and
  2. Proficiency in English
