South African participation in World Championships

Eugene Burger
South African gamers have been regular participants in international championships and have earned the respect of all of the other top players from around the world.

The MSSA has sent teams overseas overseas on a regular basis since 1991.

Such participation at international events has only been possible due to the tireless work of the many MSSA officials as well as the many sponsors who made this all happen. The sponsors are: AIR NAMIBIA (1991 - 1995), FNB (2005), ASUS (2010 - 2011), SAMSUNG (2010 - 2011), LG (2009 - 2010), GIGABYTE (2012),  MWEB (2013 - 2015)

South Africa is proud to have produced the following WORLD CHAMPIONS, being;
