Keeping South Africa's flag flying high.

MSSA's 2018 Protea Team that attended IESF's 10th World Championships - Kaohsuing City.
Without doubt no other organization in South Africa has done quite as much as Mind Sports South Africa  (MSSA) to put South Africa on the international esports gaming map.

MSSA has participated in the following 48 international events:

Of course none would have been possible without the sponsors as indicated. However, where the MSSA is mentioned in the sponsors column, it should be noted that these events were entirely self-funded by the MSSA.

The cost and effort of getting teams overseas is truly monumental and the dedication shown by the MSSA is truly admirable.

Thus despite anybody else's protestations, the only body that has really tried to get South Africans into serious on-line competition is - the 
MSSA
