Colin Webster re-elected as President of Mind Sports South Africa.

Germiston's own Colin Webster (right) seen here receiving  an award from His Highness Sheikh Ahmed Bin Mohammed al Maktoun, President of UAE Olympic Committee, has been re-elected as President of Mind sports South Africa (MSSA).

Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) was founded in 1985, and one of the persons instrumental in the founding of MSSA was Colin Webster.

Colin Webster served as President of MSSA from its founding through to 2013 when Simphiwe Maphumulo was elected in as MSSA President.

From 2013 until 2022, Colin Webster served as MSSA's General Secretary where he was able to give the duly elected Presidents at such time, Simphiwe Maphumulo, Morizane Boyes, and Amanda Pakade much needed support.

However, Colin's commitment to Mind Sports was not restricted only to South Africa. Colin also served on International Esports Federation (IESF) as a Board Member (2013 - 2018) and as President of IESF (2018 - 2020), on International Wargames Federation as President, and served on Confederation of African Esports (CAES) from (2008 - 2013) and then as General Secretary of CAES from 2014 until the present.

Colin Webster always keen to volunteer, too served on South African Sport Confederation and Olympic Commission's (SASCOC) Dispute and Arbitration Commission for a number of years.

Not satisfied with participating on the Board, Colin has also immersed himself in almost every aspect of MSSA's operations. Thus in 1998, Colin was seen umpiring in South Africa's first official esports Championships - the Gauteng Provincial Championships held at Old Edwardian Society.

Colin is thus well known as a driving force in esports, and although has been involved in esports administration is known for  his ability to promote youth and females in all structures. Being open to new ideas and change, Colin has encouraged MSSA to readily adapt to the changing conditions and circumstances. 

With Colin re-elected as MSSA's President, MSSA is bound to move forward as never before.
