Aphiwe Mbata wrests the Free State title from Khahliso Malape.

Aphiwe Mbata (HTS Sasolburg) is now ranked 3rd in the country.
On 23 June 2018, Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) held its 15th Free State Provincial Championships for the FIFA '18 esports title.

Even though Khahliso Malape (Fakkel School of Skills) was going to play in the Protea Esports Team in the test match against Namibia in the afternoon, Khahliso entered the Free State Championships as a warm-up.

However, the real star of the show was Aphiwe Mbata (HTS Sasolburg) who played his heart out, and won 4 out of the 5 rounds that he played. The only game that he lost was to Khahliso Malape in the first round of the championships.

Nevertheless, Aphiwe is determined to win the SA School Championships to be hosted by Fakkel School of Skills on 28 and 29 July 2018 in order to establish himself as the man to beat.

Aphiwe has also now qualified for MSSA's 2019 National Team Trials, and has made his intentions quite clear as to his Protea Team aspirations.

The rankings for the FIFA esports title are now:
