Female CSGO teams to play in Bali


MSSA's 2018 Protea CSGO Team which is the only all female team to date to have participated in a IESF World Esports Championships in the Counter-Strike GO game title.

Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) has always advocated gender equity in esports. The chief architect of promoting gender equity on both MSSA's field of play, as well as in the administration, is the previous and current MSSA President, Colin Webster.

Even while serving on the Board, and as President, of IESF, Colin Webster never stopped advocating such gender equity - even in the face of, sometimes, quite vitriolic opposition.

Thus for several years, South Africa was the only IESF member who put its money-where-its-mouth-is by entering female players into successive IESF World Esports Championships. For several years the only female participation at IESF World Esports Championships were South Africans.

However, IESF has announced that at its 14th World Esports Championships in Bali in 2022, there will be an event for the CSGO game title exclusively for females.

Such announcement has met with great approval by MSSA Board members and member clubs. 

MSSA has thus already entered a team to participate in such event, and thus female CSGO teams participating in MSSA events shall qualify for National Team Trials and selection.
