11th Online School Championships - 6 March 2021.

Theunis van der Merwe (Hoƫrskool Klerksdorp) winner of Street Fighter V in the 9th and 10th NWU Online School League.

MSSA is proud to announce that it will once again hold its 11th School Provincial Online Championships on 6 March 2021.

The championship is very useful in helping learners prepare for the NWU Online School League to be held later in the year as well as may be used by gamers to qualify for eligibility to be selected for the National Squads, from which the National Teams shall be drawn, should MSSA need to choose a team for any of the titles played in such championships.

MSSA's School Online Championships has become South Africa's largest official online championship. It is an event that lasts from 10H00 until 18H00 and has proved itself to be a most enjoyable event.

The esports titles to be played in all MSSA's school championships and leagues are as follows:

MSSA would also like to take this opportunity to thank all the dedicated Educators for ensuring that the school teams are ready-and-able and for giving up so much of their time and patience. Only once the learners have left school will they really comprehend what the Educators have done for them.

The championship would not be possible without the continued support from Educators.

Thank you!
