International Esports Federation (IESF) announces that its 12th Esports World Championship EILAT 2020 has concluded following the results of the regional online games.
As such COVID-19 has claimed another victim. It is unfortunate that such a decision was felt necessary by IESF whose long-lasting commitment to the players’ health and safety is paramount.
IESF will therefore distribute an increased prize pool of approximately US$75,000.00 to be divided up among the winners of all regional tournaments.
Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA), the oldest national federation for esports in the world, participated
in the African Regionals, and although having disappointing results in both DotA 2 and Tekken 7, won the PRO EVOLUTION 2020 (PES 2020) game title.
Riezwaan Hakim (PES Society) was selected to represent South Africa with full Protea Colours, and did so with pride. In terms of MSSA's protocols, Riezwaan will earn 80% of the prize-money allocated to MSSA due to his sterling efforts.
Of course the cancellation of the play-offs is a great disappointment, but it is hoped that IESF will be able to resume its normal world championships in 2021.
MSSA is also looking at a number of options to ensure that its national Protea teams are afforded the opportunity of participating in more international events.
- MSSA elections allow change and growth.
- MSSA remains a dynamic institution.
