JOHANNESBURG – THE Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) has announced the resignation of Athletes’ Representative, Amoné Bekker.
The resignation due to personal reasons is with immediate effect.
“MSSA is sad to see her depart, but realises that it is necessary, as she would not be able to fulfill her duties from a far-and-distant country,” MSSA stated.
The position Bekker occupied was created in 2005.
The person who holds this position has to represent the aims, wishes and desires of the gamers in order to ensure that the players are not overlooked in the decision-making process, according to MSSA.
“Such a Representative, must, therefore, owe greater loyalty to the players than to any club affiliation,” the organisation added.
The Player’s Representative shall have Protea colours.
They shall have represented South Africa in an international competition.
The Player’s Representative shall not be over 30 years of age at the time of such election.
MSSA is accepting applications for Bekker’s replacement.
