Johannesburg: September 15, 2021 – NODWIN Gaming, South Asia’s leading esports company, has announced the start of its fourth iteration of the Umzansi Esports League in Africa. This premier esports tournament launches from the 17th of September 2021 with a combined prize pool of US$ 17,500 across FIFA 21 (PlayStation® 4) and PUBG Mobile esports titles.

The previous season concluded with the promotion-relegation playoffs, which saw the top-ranking teams from the Inkosi Super Cup compete against the bottom-ranking teams in the Umzansi Esports League. Following several gruelling matches, the top two players in FIFA 21 and the top sixteen teams in PUBG Mobile were promoted to Umzansi Esports League Season 4.

NODWIN Gaming International CEO, Merlin Wiedeking, said: “After three successful seasons, it is time to bring in more excitement for the viewers and more challenges for the players. Umzansi Esports League has set a stage for year-round esports action and engagement and is a platform for players to return and prove their mettle in the game. NODWIN will leave no stones unturned in its efforts to build a sustainable ecosystem in Africa.”

Umzansi Esports League Season 4 will run over three months and feature some of the top esports athletes in Africa. All matches will be streamed from 18:00 (FIFA) and 19:00 (PUBGM) (GMT+2) every Friday to Sunday on the NODWIN Gaming Africa YouTube and Facebook Gaming platforms. Simulcasts of the tournament matches will also be broadcast live on GINX Esports TV (available on DStv channel 127).
