Thursday 7 April 2022


Many Protea Teams have consisted mostly of students.

Any and all
students of any South African tertiary institution (University and colleges) may participate, regardless of whether the player is MSSA affiliated or not in 
Mind Sports South Africa's (MSSA) fourth annual Provincial Online Student Championships on 9 April 2022.

However, it should be noted that only official teams entered by University Clubs affiliated to MSSA or the Sports Councils may use the tertiary institution's name.

The championship allows students from all over the country to test their mettle against each other in an official championship that has the following benefits:

  • Enable students to earn Student Provincial Colours, and
  • Qualify for selection for the National Squad (if a Registered Player), and
  • Earn medals. The medals earned are awarded at MSSA's LAN Championships.
Although MSSA selects official Protea Teams for all titles held at Provincial and National Championships, esports enthusiasts are once again reminded that the following game titles shall be played at IESF's World sports championships in Bali in November 2022:
  • Counter-Strike: GO
  • DotA
  • eFootball
  • Mobile Legends - Bang, Bang
  • Mobile PUBG
  • Tekken 7
Thus the 4th annual Provincial Online Student Championships on 9 April 2022 offers every esports enthusiast and gamer, who is a registered student, an opportunity to qualify for the Protea National Team Selection process.

Details are as follows:
  • Eligibility: Any player/team affiliated to a South African tertiary institution may enter.
