It is important to know how MSSA decides where each championship is held.
The purpose of a Derby held by a member club, albeit a private, university, and/or school club, is to:
- Help the member club raise funds, and
- Assist the member club in creating more championships for their Registered Players, and
- Enable more Registered Players to qualify for National Team Selection, and
- Further promote a general awareness of Mind Sports.
Full details of MSSA's Derby event may be obtained from MSSA by emailing email@example.com
Regional Championships may be hosted by any member club. Even a club based in a different region may host a Regional Championship in an entirely different region should MSSA's Management Committee approve. Such was the case when the Old Edwardian Mind Sports Club hosted the eThekwini Regional Championship at the Durban Gaming Expo earlier in July 2018.
The rules for hosting an official Regional Championship may be found here.
Provincial Championships rotate among the member clubs within any such province. Thus only clubs within KwaZulu Natal may host the KwaZulu Natal Provincial Championships. Through actively pursuing this policy, provincial championships are held in various centres which allows clubs to grow their support base and obtain media coverage.
National Championships rotate among all member clubs based within South Africa.
As such the prestigious SA National Championships may be held in any city in South Africa. While some gamers may consider such to be inconvenient, it must be remembered that hosting the SA National Championships or the SA Schools' National Championships gives a huge boost to the host club. Such boost to the host club may be felt for many years afterwards in terms of increased membership, particippation and media coverage.
However, to host any Regional, Provincial, and/or National Championship, the applicant member club must submit its application to host to the General Secretary by 1 November 2021.
