With South Africa’s National Team Trials, to be held on 25 March 2023, quickly approaching, excitement among Registered Players is reaching an all time high.
It is thus welcome news that International Esports Federation (IESF) has just informed Mind Sports South Africa of the number of slots for Africa for IESF’s 15th World Esports Championships (WEC 23′) to be held in August in Iasi, Romania.
The slot distribution for WEC 23′ is divided per registered country per continent, and we would like to inform you that Africa acquired a total number of 13 out of the 82 slots for the following games:
- CSGO – 3
- Dota 2 – 2
- Mobile Legends Bang Bang – 3
- PUBG Mobile – 3
- CSGO Female – 2
IESF has also advised MSSA that all African National Federations that have registered athletes for Tekken and Efootbal get a direct slot.
Thus with MSSA having so registered for both Tekken and Efootball, the Registered Player selected by MSSA at its National Team titles for these two esports titles will go straight through to lovely Iasi and not have to fight it out in an African regional Qualifier.
The last chance for athletes to qualify for National Team Trials is:
- 2023 Gauteng Online Championships to be held on 11 March 2023.
All those entering National Team Trials are again reminded to have valid passports on the date of such National Team Trials.
