The road to Eilat

Amanda Pakade, MSSA President (second on the right), and Johan van Breda, MSSA Team Manager (on the extreme right) pose with Israeli Esports Federation's officials after the announcement of IESF's 2020 host.
Mind Sports South Africa's Esports Protea Team (sponsored by EnerGHack, NWU, Partnermedia, and ZAG Academy) was present at the closing speech at IESF's 11th World championships on 14 December 2019 when the host for IESF's 12th World Championships was announced.

The announcement caught many off-guard.

The 2012 host is none other than the resort town of Eilat in Israel.

Eilat is a southern Israeli port and resort town on the Red Sea, near Jordan. Its beaches are noted for their calm waters, like Dolphin Reef, where the aquatic mammals are often spotted. Known for snorkeling and diving, Coral Beach Nature Reserve has buoy-marked underwater trails among fish-filled reefs. Nearby Coral World Underwater Observatory Marine Park has a glass-enclosed observation center submerged offshore.

IESF officials have alreaddy inspected the venue, and are more than satisfied that Maccabiah in conjunction with Israeli Esports Federation will deliver the best-to-date World Championships.

Israel has already guaranteed that all are welcome and that all shall have safe entry.

Mind sports South Africa (MSSA) is already gearing itself to deliver a team to Eilat.

MSSA has always delivered a full team to every single World Championships, and there is no reason why 2020 will be any different.

Off course the game titles have not yet been announced, and MSSA is confident that it will be able to field a team in every game title selected.

Thus the race is on to Eilat. Who will make it into the team?

The chips  are down, and now it is up to the personal dedication, determination, and efforts of those who have the will to make it
