The 2022 Student Esports Team is South Africa's most successful student team ever!
Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) is deep in negotiations with other National Federations to have an official student es[orts team represent South Africa again on foreign soil.
MSSA's 2022 Student 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.
There is no reason why South Africa's top students wouldn't enjoy such success again.
Thus 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. Students who fail to take advantage of this opportunity will certainly regret their decision in the future.
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.
- Eligibility: Any player/team affiliated to a South African tertiary institution may enter.
