Who may stand for the position of MSSA's Players' Representative?

It should be noted that MSSA, created the position for Players' Representative on its committee in 2005. However, it was not until 2006 that MSSA found a player willing to take on such an important role.

The player's who have served as Players' Representative are as follows:

Years Players’ Representatives Club
2016 to present Jason Batzofin St John’s College
2010 Jonathan Newman Maritzburg Griffins
2006 – 2008 Amanda Kwaza University of Johannesburg

The current representative is Jason Batzofin. Jason first earned his Protea Colours in 2014 for wargames, and then in 2015 earned such colours  for both wargames and esports.

Since then, Jason has moved on as a direct resul
t of holding such position.

In 2016, Jason was appointed by the International Esports Federation (IESF) to sit on its Athletes' Commission.

In 2017 IESF's Athletes Commission elected Jason to be the Chairperson of such Commission. As the Chairperson of the Athletes' Commission, Jason too sits on IESF's Board and represents the interests of all players/athletes directly to the very highest levels of esports.


To be elected as the Players’ Representative to MSSA's Board, such player shall have Protea Colours, and shall have represented South Africa in an International Competition, and shall not be over 30 years of age at the time of such election.

With South Africa's consistent participation in international events, there are over 30 Registered Players who are able to stand for such position.

The position of Players' Representative is  just one of the many benefits  of having Protea Colours.
