SA eSports expanding across the globe
From the 25th of July till the 2nd of August Colin Webster, the general secretary of MSSA, along with Jason Batzofin, the MSSA player's representative, will be attending the Global eSports Executive Summit in Shanghai, China. The summit will take place at the prestigious Hyatt hotel. During the summit the IeSF along with all other federations involved hope to make plans to further the development of eSports world wide and to discuss the potential that eSports can produce with the more traditional sports.
The summit will be hosted by the IeSF. International e-Sports Federation (IeSF) is the sole international governing body representing the discipline of e-sports. In order to deliver its mission statement, to develop global e-sports standard for promoting and settling down e-sports as official sport discipline, IeSF was founded in 2008 with its 9 founding member nations with support of the Government. As IeSF is being perceived as one of the authorized international governing bodies, IeSF is further attempting to take a role in the e-sports field to enhance and upraise global recognition of e-sports.
