NESA to Host Online DotA2 National Tournament

The Namibian Electronic Sports Association (NESA) is geared for the 2020 National Tournament in Defense of the Ancients 2 (DotA2). Considering the current global pandemic of Covid-19, we invite players and teams to participate in this year’s tournament from the comfort of their own homes. We are grateful that Namibian esports is able to proceed with online activities and trust in the support from the gaming community.  

Registrations for this PC title is available on the NESA website esportsnamibia.org/upcoming-running-tournaments/ and will close on 17 June 2020 at 17:00 strictly. Teams that are interested to participate should ensure that all team members are registered and paid before they will be allowed to participate in this online tournament. Games are scheduled to officially start on 21 June 2020. Entry fees are charged at N$50 for fully registered and paid NESA Members, and N$100 for Non-NESA Members. The NESA Membership fee is N$250 per annum and registrations can be done on the NESA website. This tournament offers some great cash prizes.

Players should note that only Namibians that are NESA Members will be eligible for the National Esports Team selections. Non-Namibians are welcome to apply for NESA membership as this will go a long way in supporting NESA to grow gaming as a sport in Namibia.

Persons who are interested in being a part of the NESA Selection Committee are welcome to contact NESA directly for more information and requirements.

NESA is making every effort to secure more opportunities for Namibian esports athletes to compete internationally and to develop professional gaming within the country. NESA was able to send athletes to participate at the IESF Esports World Championship in the years 2017 through 2019, and every effort is being made to ensure the 2020 Namibian Esports Team will be afforded with the same opportunity. International online matches will also be arranged for the Namibian Esports Team to hone their skills.

NESA would also like to sincerely thank our sponsors, Logitech, Future CC and Vander Designs, as well as all the volunteers who work tirelessly in making the event possible. Persons who want to become involved with the event or NESA in general, either through sponsorship or as volunteer, are welcome to send an email to info@esportsnamibia.org.
