|Registered Players participating in a previous City of Cape Town Regional Championship.|
However, there seems to be some confusion as to who may host such regional championships, and how such regional championship needs to be hosted.
To answer the above, it should be noted that any member affiliated to Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) may host a Regional Championship. Readers should note that members of MSSA are the clubs, not the Registered Players.
Thus any/all member clubs may apply to host, and this is where it gets really interesting.
Regional Championships do not have to be held only for the titles which are played at National and/or Provincial Championships.
Regional Championships may be held in ANY game title.
Thus Regional championships ,may be played in the esports titles of Minecraft, Overwatch, Rocket League, Quake, and so forth. This is so that MSSA can objectively evaluate the grass-roots support for the various titles. The more that a title is played at Regional Championship level, the more likely that the title will be included as a Provincial and National Championship title.
Also, unlike Provincial and National Championships, all the tit;les do not need to be played at the same time.
In other words, the host club, could, if it so desires, host a Regional Championship every single month per title.
So, as an example, Club X, could run the Namakwa Regional Championships for PES in January, FIFA in February, Call of Duty in March, CounterStrike: GO in April, Minecraft in May, and so forth.
In such a manner, the club will build its own reputation and finances and become an active member of Mind Sports South Africa.
