The various events held by Mind Sports South Africa.


Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA), the oldest national federation for esports in the word in runs a plethora of events during each and every year. It is through such events that Registered Players qualify for the National Team selection process. It should be noted that MSSA first awarded Protea Colours (then Springbok Colours) for Wargames in 1995, for Board Gaming in 1997,and for Esports in 2005. It was entirely through MSSA's efforts that Wargames, Board Gaming, and Esports became accredited sports.

Volunteers stand at the core of MSSA, and without whom, nothing would get done or be achieved. MSSA is indeed blessed to have sterling volunteers who act as administrators, umpires, and technical officials. It is only due to the involvement of such volunteers MSSA is able to host so many activities.

All the volunteers are deeply appreciated, as well as the sponsors (EnerGHack, North West University, Partnermedia, Tuluntulu, and ZAG Academy) - well done! Without their dedication and commitment, MSSA would not have achieved what it has!

In 2019, MSSA held no fewer than 30 events. Even in 2020 with the devastating effects of COVID-19, MSSA was still able to hold 22 events under the most trying circumstances.
