South Africa's Battlefield 3 teams invited to partake in international nations cup

Clanbase has extended an invitation to South African Battlefield 3 PC teams to partake in the Nations Cup. Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) is the governing body of e-Sports in South Africa, all Battlefield 3 teams are therefore urged to register through the MSSA to partake in this prestigious event. Teams have to enter no later than January 13.


Details from Mind Sports South Africa

This means things must happen very quickly. Thus we realise that will not be the perfect competition, but it will enable hopefully the best team in South Africa to compete on an international stage.

The MSSA shall hold an on-line championships for Battlefield 3 on Saturday, 12 January 2013.

The starting time for the championships shall be 14H30 and depending on the number of entries should finish at 22H00.   There will be no entry fees payable, but all participants must be fully-paid-up registered players. There are two ways of doing this.

  • Clans can either just register through Knights Mind Sports Club - in this way gamers only have to pay the registration fee (if not already paid).
  • Apply to affiliate your clan as a member in its own right.

The winning team shall officially represent South Africa in the Nations Cup.

Team requirements

In order to enter your team, your team shall:

  1. Consist of members who are all MSSA Registered Players.
  2. Be a mix of existing clans – this is a Nation's Cup prerequisite.
  3. Have agreed on its team captain.
  4. Be of eight members.
  5. While the MSSA would prefer for all team members to come from the same locality – the reason for such is that the National Team would then all play from the same venue which will address lag issues as well as increase the opportunity for press - such will not be a prerequisite for this championships.

The team shall receive National Federation Colours and will be an official SA team. For queries contact the MSSA at
