ACGL recently announced that they are looking to expand their admin team, and those who want to start their esports journey shouldn’t miss out.

First and foremost, it is important to note that this is not a paid position. However, this shouldn’t stop those who want to take their first step into the South African esports scene.

ACGL explains in the announcement post: “While the junior online administration role is not a paying position, those who show true ability can go on to become part of the regular ACGL team. This includes assisting at venue-based events and expos and growing beyond basic tournament administration. As you prove yourself with the team, you can expect the same opportunities to be offered to you.”

If you are interested in applying for a Junior tournament admin position at ACGL, you can head on over to the announcement post, or directly to the application form to start filling in your details. Again, please note this is a volunteer position.

  • Have some experience or knowledge of competitive gaming
  • A knowledge of all the games we offer is not necessary, but knowledge of more than one title would be beneficial

  • Currently, this is only open to South African residents. We will be looking to expand this in the future.

Applicants will spend three sessions with Senior admins from ACGL. Here, they will be assessed and taught. If an applicant makes the cut, they will land the position of Junior admin.

What is expected:
