|Johan van Breda
This is particularly true for volunteer organisations such as Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA).
Fortunately for MSSA there are many gamers who feel the need to 'put back' into gaming.
One such person is Johan van Breda.
Johan rose to fame in 2016 when he was selected to represent South Africa in the Protea League of Legends team.
The team participated in IeSF's 8th World Championships in Jakarta, where the team helped South Africa to earn a ranking of 14th in the world.
In a bid to further develop the South African gaming scene, Johan has volunteered to also umpire in order to introduce gamers to the standard that the players will find at international competition.
It is largely due to the likes of Johan that MSSA is growing in leaps and bounds.
