Colin Webster announced today that MSSA has entered its largest team Protea Team ever.

Mind Sports South Africa's President, Colin Webster, today confirmed that MSSA has entered
International Esports Federation's (IESF) 16th World Championships.

MSSA has been a staunch, and loyal member, of IESF since 2009, and has participated in every single IESF World Championship since 2009. 

MSSA has always advocated greater inclusion of events for females at such World Championships. Withe Colin Webster having served on IOESF's Board from 2013 to 2020, the number of events specifically for females has grown in number. It was in 2018 that South Africa fielded the first all female Counter-Strike team at IESF's 10th World Championships - an act which many see as a forerunner of IESF implementing an all female Counter-Strike event at its 14th World Championships.

It is therefore not surprising that MSSA has thus entered all IESF esports titles on offer at IESF's 16th World Championships - especially the female events.

The esports titles entered by MSSA are:

  • Counter-Strike 2 (open)
  • Counter-Strike 2 (female)
  • DOTA 2 (open) 
  • eFootball (Open) 
  • Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (open)
  • Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (female)
  • PUBG mobile (open)

Colin Webster stated, "This is the largest entry that South Africa has ever made, and MSSA is confident that the 2024 Protea Team will be the strongest team ever to represent South Africa as the Protea Team'.
