5th Provincial Online Student Championships - 6 May 2023

MSSA's 2022 Protea Esports Team has proven itself to be SA's most successful SA team in international competition having won the sum total of 400,000 Rubles.

Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) having now completed its National Team Trials for its Protea Team for IESF's 15th World Esports Championships to be held in Lasi, Romania, MSSA now turns its attention  to its fifth annual Provincial Online Student Championships to be held on 6 May 2023.

MSSA's 5th Provincial Online Student Championships to be held on 6 May 2023 will be a major qualifying event for any student team selected to represent South africa.

Many will remember that MSSA sent a team across to Russia in 2022 where the DotA and Counter-Strike: GO teams each won 200,000 Rubles each prize money.

Any student of any South African tertiary institution (University and colleges) may participate, regardless of whether the player is MSSA affiliated or not.

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.
The event lasts from 10H00 until 18H00.
