Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) originally allocated the prize money to the esports title ‘eFootball™’, as published by Konami, but since such esports title does not allow person to person play over the internet, MSSA has agreed to reallocate the prize money to the EA SPORTS™ FIFA 2022 sports titles.
With the MSSA’s NWU Online School League about to start on 25th of July 2022 esports athletes devoted to the FIFA 2022™ esports title now stand to participate in the generous prize money as offered by North West University (NWU).
The prizes are divided into three categories:
- Overall purse prize being a bursary (courtesy of NWU to the value of R30,000.00 and R5,000.00 for the CS:GO, DotA 2, FIFA 2022™, Mobile Legends Bang Banc, and Street Fighter V esports titles,
- Prizes for the best female athletes, and
- Best school award.
Even though only six (6) of the eleven (11) titles carry the fabulous prizes as sponsored by North West University (NWU), it should be noted that that ALL titles offered do count towards:
- Participation in National Team Trials, and
- School Provincial Colours
