Game titles played at World Championships.

As per IeSF's press release sent out on 7 April 2017, the venue for IeSF's 9th World  Championships has been selected to be the Busan Port Authority Convention Center from November 8th to 12th, 2017.

Without any doubt, MSSA is looking forward to once again participate in the World Championships and attempt to better its current ranking of 14th in the World.

In the fast changing world of gaming, it is difficult to predict which game titles shall be selected as IeSF has many factors to consider.

One can only applaud IeSF's Secretariat for all the hard work that they put in in ensuring that the event takes place year-after-year-after-year.

The back-end done by the Secretariat, under the guidance of Alex Lim (Secretary General) is truly amazing, and only those who have run an event that included o
ver 37 countries and 400 people will understand the logistics involved.

To fully understand MSSA's commitment, please review the table hereunder which details the games played, and the South African athletes that participated.
