Revised 2020 Calendar of events - National Team Trials

Hopefulls battling it out at the last National Team Trials.
There is no doubt that Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) has had on an impact on the way in which we all live our lives. With the lockdown extended by the South African government, Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) has had to take cognizance of the regulations and adapt accordingly. Thus under these trying circumstances, MSSA's calendar is currently in a state of flux. Nevertheless, it seems as though International Esports Federation (IESF) shall still be holding its 12th World Championships in November 2020 as no word to the contrary has yet been issued. As such MSSA still has a duty to deliver its national Protea Team.To do so, MSSA has moved its National Team Trials to August to allow athletes to prepare.
It is expected that there will be several more unprecedented changes to MSSA's Calendar of Events for 2020.

All  Registered Players should be reminded that they can help protect themselves and others by always carrying tissues, and using them to catch coughs or sneezes.  They should bin the tissue, and to kill the germs, wash their hands with soap and water, or use a sanitiser gel. This is the best way to slow the spread of most germs, including Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).


The following calendar of events has thus been amended


MSSA's Calendar of events for 2020 is as follows:
