Team eSports SA to go to 2016 TAFISA Games?

14 February 2014, 12:30

The IeSF has negotiated with TAFISA (The Association for International Sports for All) to add e-sports to theofficial program in 2016 TAFISA World Sport For All Games (Jakarta, Indonesia).


Since its founding in Bordeaux, France, in 1991, TAFISA has grown dramatically. With over 180 members in 120 countries from all continents, TAFISA has a foundation and framework that is second-to-none from which to spearhead the global Sport for All movement. TAFISA is officially recognized by, and in active cooperation with, the International Olympic Committee (IOC), United Nations Education, Science and Culture Organisation (UNESCO) and the World Health Organisation (WHO). TAFISA also enjoys working relationships with other international bodies, including ICSSPE, FISpT and others.

On 1st January 2010, the International Assembly of National Organisations of Sport (IANOS) was formally integrated into TAFISA, strengthening TAFISA’s position as representing the global Sport for All movement.

The TAFISA World Sport for All Games is held every four years. The week-long Games are a vibrant and entertaining experience, offering a unique opportunity for the public to discover the traditional and contemporary games and sports of cultures from across the globe. 

As most members will know, the MSSA has been long involved with TAFISA and has sent Morabaraba teams to the 1996 Games in Thailand and the 2012 Games in Lithuania.


Now, the MSSA is committed to sending an eSports team, as well as the Morabaraba team, to the 2016 TAFISA World Sport For All Games in Jakarta.


This means that the South African eSport team will get an opportunity to participate at one of the largest multi-sports events.


Exciting stuss, and it will no doubt have huge benefits for the cyber athletes that get selected to represent South Africa.
 
Interestingly enough, few gamers will be aware that Danny Jordaan (currently President of SAFA) acted as the Chef d' Mission of the team that went to Thailand.

Violence against foreign shop owners erupted in Soweto. Some consider this to be a crime; others call it to be a face of xenophobia similar to that which happened in 2008 in South Africa.  Read more...
