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 result 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.
Even as I write this, Jason is in Sweden involved in high level discussions with IESF's Board.
To be elected as the Players’ Representative to MSSA's Management 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.
