MSSA selects a new National Esports Team Manager.

Johan van Breda.
Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) has just appointed a new National Team Manager (NTM) for esports in the person of Johan van Breda (ZAG Academy).

The duties of the National Team Manager includes preparing the national team, organising test matches (both online and LAN), overseeing coaching of the team, axing non compliant team members, and accompanying the team to events.

One such event is IESF's 10th World Championships - Kaoshuing to which MSSA has already entered teams to participate in Counter-Strike: GO, League of Legends, and  Tekken 7.

Thus the National Team Manager carries great  responsibility, for, it is on the NTM's broad shoulders that the national team's hopes and dreams are carried.

It is a hard position to hold, and it is not for the faint of heart, it is for those who want to go the extra mile.

It should be remembered that MSSA's rankings at IESF World Championships are:

Year Venue Position
2017 Busan –  South Korea 12th
2016 Jakarta –  Indonesia 14th
2015 Seoul –  South Korea 12th
2014 Baku –  Azerbaijan 13th
2013 Bucharest –  Romania 10th
2012 Cheonan –  South Korea 18th
2011 Andong –  South Korea 13th
