Pioneering the Future of Esports for South Africa's Youth


Telkom VS Gaming proudly highlights the transformative impact of esports on South African youth. As a leading force in the industry, Telkom VS Gaming is demonstrating how, with Telkom, anything is possible.

Once seen merely as a hobby, esports has rapidly evolved into a dynamic platform offering numerous opportunities for personal and professional growth. This evolution is particularly evident in South Africa, where the rise of esports is changing the lives of many young people. Through support and initiatives like Telkom VS Gaming, esports is providing youth with avenues for skill development, teamwork, and career opportunities. For many young South Africans, esports is becoming a pathway to new opportunities in technology, media, and professional gaming.

Participating in esports requires more than just gaming skills; it nurtures critical thinking, strategic planning, and effective communication. These skills are not only applicable in gaming but also in academic and professional spheres, making esports a valuable tool in the holistic development of young individuals.

Telkom VS Gaming has been at the forefront of this movement, hosting gaming tournaments at iconic events such as Comic Con Cape Town and Comic Con Africa. These events are not just competitions; they are celebrations of youth talent and passion. Young gamers from across the nation gather to compete, learn, and connect, showcasing the incredible potential of esports. The involvement of youth in these high-profile tournaments is a testament to the growing acceptance and enthusiasm for esports in South Africa.

A prime example of how Telkom VS Gaming is ensuring the inclusion of youth in esports is its innovative, the High School esports League (HSEL). This league, open to high school students aged 14 and up, focuses on popular games such as Counter-Strike and Rocket League. At Comic Con Cape Town, fans witnessed Ridhaa April win the HSEL: Heroes of the Pitch tournament for the FC24, following in his brother’s successful esports career, putting him on the radar of young professional gamers to watch.

Telkom's initiative goes beyond entertainment; it paves the way for esports to be recognised as a viable career path. Through structured competitions and support, young players can gain exposure, improve their gameplay, and potentially attract the attention of professional teams and sponsors.

As we celebrate Youth Month, Telkom VS Gaming reaffirms its dedication to the development of esports in South Africa. With ongoing support and innovative initiatives, Telkom VS Gaming is not just shaping the future of esports but also enriching the lives of the youth who will lead our nation forward. is an award-winning Digital Media, Marketing, and Advertising Company est. 2015, is a Member of the Independent Media Association of South Africa (IMASA), and Brand South Africa's Play Your Part Ambassadors, with a global reach of over 10 million
