Results of MSSA's NWU 14th Annual School League - 2023.

As usual the support given by North West University has been crucial to promote esports in South Africa.

For 14 years, without fail, Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) has run its Online School League. While MSSA remains indebted to ASUS as the first sponsor of such league in 2010.

However, with MSSA's partnership with North West University (NWU), since 2019, the league has been elevated to new heights.

2023 also saw MSSA's NWU Annual School League remain the richest official school league in the country.

Not only can learners earn much needed funds for their school esports, but one such expert learner earns a fantastic bursary to the value of R30,000.00 to assist in his studies at the prestigious North West University.

Esports allows all schools to play on an equal playing ground as public and private schools battle it out against each other. 

With esports, gone are the days of wealthier schools dominating sports as esports provides a cost effective system for any school, whether in Cape Town or in Beit Bridge, to compete against each other without the huge travelling costs incurred by the more traditional sporting codes.

After fierce and gruelling competition between learners from around the country, the winners are:
