Colours awarded by MSSA.

Players wearing National Colours.
There always seems to be a little confusion about the colours awarded by Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA).

In order to clear  up some of the confusion, the colours are listed below in order of highest to lowest:

  • Protea Colours: Protea Colours are awarded to players who represent South Africa in accredited international events. All members of teams that are selected for events outside of South Africa are awarded such colours. However, players who are selected for South African teams that play within the the borders of South Africa have to actually participate in such event for such colours.
  • National Colours: All Players that win all of their Matches at a National Championship will earn National Colours, as well as all players who are selected for a team to represent South Africa.
  • Provincial Colours: All Players that win all of their Matches at a Provincial Championship will earn Provincial Colours. All Players who score within the top 50% in a specific Period at a Provincial Championship, and who also score within the top 50% at a National Championship in the same period and in the same year, will earn Provincial Colours. Players who are selected to represent a province in an inter-provincial test match are also awarded Provincial Colours.
  • Regional Colours: All Players that win all of their Matches at a Regional Championship will earn Regional Colours. Players who are selected to represent a province in an inter-provincial test match are also awarded Provincial Colours.
