MWEB sponsored clan; Clans SA Gaming (CSA) will be hosting the very first Riot Games-sanctioned South African League of Legends tournament. Players will duel it out in a single elimination tournament for the chance to win “bragging rights” to being the best player in South Africa in a specific role.

The first place player will win 20 Euros of Riot Points and the Triumphant Ryze skin, which you can only obtain by winning an official Riot tournament. The second place winner will receive 15 Euros worth of Riot Points, with third and fourth winning 10 Euros and 5 Euros worth of the same respectively.
