Through a formal accreditation process for referees, IESF’s referees’ course, and referees themselves shall set new standards and shall be in the forefront of raising esports to even greater heights.
IESF President, Colin Webster, stated, “In my opinion, referees are the front-line of all our member federations. As such, IESF is committed to capacitate such referees to the best of its ability so that such referees will help ensure the long-term growth and sustainability of esports.” It should be noted that Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) has participated in this process from the very beginning, and as Amanda Kwaza (MSSA President) has stated, "MSSA hopes to see many South Africans benefit from the internationally structured referees' course".
