World Electronic Sports Games qualifiers comes to South Africa, hosted by Mettlestate In March 2019, the World Electronic Sports Games (WESG), one of the biggest international esports championship tournaments, will take place in China. The prize pool for this tournament is $5.5 million, and official qualifiers for South Africa, to be hosted by Mettlestate, has been announced. WESG has signed a three-year deal with Mettlestate, confirming they are the official liaison for WESG in South Africa Barry Louzada, co-founder of Mettlestate, is ecstatic to finally be able to share the news with the esports community, and is looking forward to how this partnership with WESG will further develop esports in South Africa. Access to international tournaments for South Africans have always been rare opportunities - and ones that are sorely needed if we want to get international experience and recognition. WESG have strict regulations when it comes to becoming an official partner, and Mettlestate has been working actively to meet all the requirements laid forth by WESG. After much work, sweat, long hours and many chats with WESG, we finally managed to secure the three-year partnership thanks to Mettlestate' ongoing commitment to improvement and upping the esports ante in South Africa. This is awesome news for esports in South Africa as it means that there will be guaranteed WESG qualifiers in Africa for the next three years."
