In a move that will have a positive impact on the e-sports world, Asus SA is to sponsor Mind Sports SA (MSSA).
Asus is well known in the gaming world, especially for its flagship ROG (Republic of Gamers) series of graphic cards, motherboards, and notebooks.
MSSA is an affiliate of the SASCOC (South African Confederation of Sport & Olympic Committee) and the National Federation of eSports.
The agreement positions Asus as the headline sponsor of all of MSSA’s provincial and national Championships for 2010, as well as MSSA’s 2010 Interschool league.
Through the sponsorship, MSSA is able to extend its provincial LAN championships to more provinces, also to initiate the first official eSports interschool league in South Africa.
The inter-school league is a new development which aims to nurture local talent and improve the awareness of e-sports as an officially accredited sport in South Africa.
