Our hope is that VS Gaming Weekly will become a catalyst to a major rise in interest in local gaming and that it will illustrate to the country the amazing local Esports talent. I would like to thank our partners Telkom and SABC for helping to make this a reality and urge all of South Africa to check out the show and learn just how exciting Esports and gaming can be.”
