Thirteen athletes have so far qualifed for MSSA's StarCraft II 2017 National Team Trials.
Out of the thirteen athletes who have qualified, only two of the players who have so qualified are female which shows that MSSA still has a way to go in promoting gender equity in this game title.
Also, out of the thirteen athletes who have qualified, 6 of those 13 players are learners.
The continued upward mobility of learners in all of MSSA's events shows that there is a lot of promise in South African gaming. The development of school clubs is a cornerstone of the future success of South African gaming on an international level.
It is at such National Team Trials that the team to officially represent South Africa shall be selected.
