Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) has just been informed that International Esports Federation is launching its first Online Referee Program.
IESF's Online Referee Program was in the planning stages for a couple of years, so it is a bit of a surprise that member federations only have until Wednesday, December 9th, 2020 to make their nominations.
This means, that all MSSA Registered Players wishing to be considered must apply by 12H00 on Tuesday 8th, 2020 for consideration by MSSA's Board.
The Referee Program is one of the three pillars of the Global Esports R&D Center, located in Busan, South Korea, supported by Busan Metropolitan City and Busan IT Promotion Agency.
Following up on the Referee Academy conducted at the beginning of 2020, this online session will be the second opportunity for national referees to be trained for the international level in 2020.
International Esports Referee Program is dedicated to the development of standards and an intensive curriculum designed to educate and increase the expertise of national and international Esports referees. This is done in order to support the integrity of Esports and to contribute to the success of athletes, teams, and events on the world stage.
