"Telkom pioneered e-sports in South Africa, but with its tremendous growth, we realised that it needed to be a standalone entity to give it the focus, energy and attention it deserves. This new entity will have the backing of Telkom to further expand e-sports in South Africa," says Mokanyane.
"The aim of VS Gaming is to grow the e-sports market while working together with other organisations to make it inspirational, profitable and professional. We continue the work of DGL to provide gamers of all levels with professional platforms to grow, learn and attract international exposure."
In another move, VS Gaming announced it will host the largest football e-tournament in Africa at Gallagher Estate in Johannesburg on 22 and 23 July. It says this will be the first of its kind in SA and will see more than a thousand players taking part in FIFA 17 with the chance to win a substantial prize pool. More details on this tournament will be announced closer to the time.
e-Sports is certainly growing from strength to strength in South Africa now.
