Games to be offered in official school esports leagues and championships

Maritzburg Colleges DotA 2  team at MSSA's 2016 National Team Trials.
As per the recent post where it was mentioned that MSSA would be deliberating at its Annual General Meeting (4 December 2016) on which games would be held at its 2017 championships, the very same meeting shall too decide on which games shall be held in the official school leagues and championships.

The number  off schools affiliated to MSSA has grown exponentially. What started out as a pretty small league in 2010 has grown in leaps-and-bounds to now include some of the best schools in the country.

Not only has the number of schools grown, but every month more-and-more schools apply for affiliation.

Such is the growth of esports that it is thought that within a few more years, the majority of schools will be participating in MSSA's official school ;leagues and championships.

Not only that, but the growth of esports at school level bodes well for the competitiveness of South African national teams.

It is the gamers at school level that hold the future of South African gaming in their hand
