National Federation Colours

Xola Magwaza proudly wearing MSSA's National Federation Colours. Where teams do not meet the criteria for Protea Colours, National Federation Colours are awarded.
There is a difference between National Federation Colours and Protea Colours, albeit, in the eye of the untrained observer, not much of a difference.

Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) awards Protea Colours to its national teams that are selected to represent South Africa in international events overseas, and those who participate against foreign teams while in South Africa.

National Federation Colours however, are awarded as follows;

  • To Registered Players who are selected for the National Squad, and/or
  • To Regestered Players who are officially representing South Africa where the stringent criteria for the award of Protea Colours are not met, and/or
  • To Registered Players who win all their rounds in their game title at MSSA's SA National Championships. 
The rationale for awarding National Federation Colours to those Registered Players who win all their rounds in their game title at MSSA's SA National Championships is based on the assumption, that any Registered Player who is capable of winning every round is of sufficiently high standard to earn such colours.

Thus SA National Championships attains an added dimension with Registered Players being able to earn National federation Colours.
