The award ceremony held on Monday, 3 October 2011 was for Mind Sports South Africa's official team that will compete in the 2011 IeSF World Championship to be held in Andong, South Korea from 6 to 10 October 2011.

The team will compete in two games, being FIFA Online™ and StarCraft II™.

It may be of interest to readers to note that the MSSA has participated in the IeSF's events right from the inception of the IeSF, and the South African team has not only always held its own, but has always been able to forge strong friendships among the international players.

The gathered audience enthusiastically showed their support for the team as the two cyber athletes stepped forard to receive their Protea Colours.

The team is:

Ian Pillay

University of the Witwatersrand

FIFA Online™

Robert Botha

PolarFluke

StarCraft II™

The team departs South Africa on 4 October 2011 to arrive in South Korea on 5 October 2011.

Play begins on 6 October 2011.
