But why the fuss? What is so important about the Free State championships?
Does not the championship have exactly the same status as other provincial championships?
While the Free State Championships has exactly the same status as other provincial championships, it is for that reason that it attains a greater significance.
The reasoning behind the above statement is that the championship counts towards team selection for the 2018 National Team Trials.
As such, it is a good way to get an early qualification, and by doing so, it allows players and/or teams to experiment in order to improve their standard as the pressure to qualify has been removed.
Teams are able, over the year, to get a greater number of players to qualify for 'Trials' in order to improve the depth of talent for 'Trials', and individual gamers are able to use new and different tactics in order to improve their personal game-play.
An early qualification also enables gamers pleanty of time to sort out their own paperwork, such as ensuring that they have a valid passport, unabridged birth certificates (if applicable), and so forth.
Not only that, but MSSA's 14th MSSA Free State Championships to be held at Fakkel School, 20 Jan Smuts Ave., Sasolburg, on 24 & 25 June 2017 also enables clubs to generate content for MSSA's Channel on Tuluntulu. Such content will allow the club to offer more to its sponsors, and hopefully attract bigger and better sponsorships.
Many readers already know that the channel is screened 24/7 and has a number of viewers right around the world - even in the heart of gaming - South Korea.
