Results: Online Championships held on 4 May 2024.

Roedean Reaper Bees (seated Jiya Chagan (capt), Standing left to right: Aadilah Noorbhai, Diya Parthab, Abigail Adonis & Lethabo Ledwaba) are the first female team to be awarded Provincial Colours for the Valorant Esports Title.

 Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) has just held its Combined Online Provincial Championships for Schools on 24 May 2024.

The provincial championship enabled participants to qualify for MSSA's National Team Trials (NTT) which will be used to select South Africa's National Protea Teams to attend the international events to which South Africa will send official teams.

There were no less than six (6) provinces represented, and more importantly, again there were more females participating. Of the 34 athletes who earned Provincial Colours, 11 of such athletes are females.

The female esports team, AHG (PES Society), had a good showing in the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang esports title. Of course, Mobile Legends: Bang Bang is just  one of the six titles which MSSA has entered to contest at IESF's 16th World Championships. 

Of special interest is the Roedean Reaper Bees (Roedean School). Even though the team made its competitive debut in this championship, the team punched well above its weight to win the female division. By winning the female division, the members have all earned Senior Gauteng Provincial Colours and a berth in the National Team trials to be held later this year.

IESF's 16th World Championships will be played to the following titles:

  • Counter-Strike 2
  • Counter-Strike 2 - Female division
  • DotA 2
  • eFootball
  • Mobile Legends, Bang Bang
  • Mobile Legends, Bang Bang - Female division
