In a bid to facilitate increased game time for female esport players, Mind Sports South Africa arranged a Mobile Legends Bang Bang international friendly tournament against top European opponents to develop the sport and also to promote cultural exchange, skill development, and international relations, in a virtually-hosted international on 4 May, 2024.

The Western Cape Provincial team took on the newly-selected Belarusian women’s esports team in two rounds, but with the SA-based team struggling with poor ping compared to their European-based opponents, it was a one-sided affair, with the Belarus team winning 26-1 and 24-0. 

Team SA were under pressure throughout, as Ra’isha Prout, Fatima Prout, Inez Pringle, and Salma Parker and well-known esports player Je’Nielle Cavanagh as captain, eventually succumbed to their victorious European opponents. 

Despite the heavy loss, Cavanagh feels that the team gained important knowledge:

“The Belarusian team is very good, and showed a high standard of game knowledge and playing skill. My Western Cape female team all did their very best, and all learned valuable lessons during the friendly.”

The team will now shift their focus to the second leg of the ‘Road to Riyadh’ where they are looking to book their place at the upcoming International Esports Federation’s 16th World Esports Championships in November. 

It was Cavanagh and Mikara Nokraj who stole the show in the first leg earlier in May, and will certainly be looking to continue with the form when they take to the screens on Saturday, 18 May, 2024. 

However, the work doesn’t end there as the team will then take part in the National Team Trials for IESF 16th WEC, which gets underway next weekend. The stakes a high as whoever is chosen to represent South Africa at the trials on 25 May, will also be in the team that will be at the World Championships in Riyadh.
