South Africa to do battle against Azerbaijan.

Yet another exciting test match is to take place.
As the IESF's 2020 World Championships to be held in Eilat, Israel in November later this year comes ever closer, teams are frantically trying to ready themselves for what will be the test of the year and result in world champions being produced in a a number of titles.

DotA 2 has already been selected  as an official title for such world championships.


Through the IESF's online test matches, South Africa is able to test the team against worthy adversaries. The European teams of course, are able to attend many more tournaments than what cash-strapped South Africans can, and thus develop their teams to apparently unassailable heights.

With COVID-19, teams are of course under lockdown, so national team athletes will be playing from their residences. Of course the  games will still be strictly monitored to ensure that fair play is enforced.

Azerbaijan Cybersport Federation is fiercely competitive and never gives quarter. Azerbaijan Cybersport Federation is well known for their high standard of play.

Both nations are thus enthusiastically rushing forward to this clash.

The Test Match will be held on Saturday, 16 May 2020 from 18H30.


The South African Protea team for 16 May 2020 consists of:

Thanks to the governing Sports Body, Minds Sports South Africa (MSSA) and the support given by PartnerMedia, the South African participation in such test matches is becoming a regular occurrence.

With esports being recognised as a fully recognised sport by both SASCOC and the government, gaming is now taken more seriously than ever before. Already gaming has been included into the Asian Games by the Asian Olympic Committee.

Test matches between South Africa and Azerbaijan Cybersport Federation are always entertaining with a great deal of honour on the line.
