Aidan Smale will be heading off to the USA to continue his studies at the University of Rio Grande in Ohio for the Fall 2021 Semester (August). He will be going over to represent the university at CSGO, and, coming from King Edward VII School (KES) his academics are a number one priority with his gaming.
While a Registered Player for the Old Edwardian Mind Sports Club, Aidan earned Gauteng Provincial
Colours and South African National Colours for the StarCraft II esports title from Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA).
BRUSA helped Aidan from day one, but it was his tenacity and pure drive that really got him such a good scholarship. BRUSA is particularly proud of Aidan and
cannot wait to help him along this awesome career path.
This is what Aidan had to say about everything. “It has always been a dream of mine to study in the USA and I have also always been into competitive gaming. I hope that this can open doors for other South African esports players that would like to pursue their education as well as a career in competitive esports".
Aidan continued by saying, "There are many Universities that offer many different titles. I have chosen to play CSGO at the University of Rio Grande as a scholarship athlete. This opportunity would not have been possible without the help of BRUSA Sports, and so I would like to give many thanks to Michael and his team at BRUSA Sports for all the help and advice through this process".
