Soccer Laduma, the biggest soccer publication in South Africa, has launched its own eSport league.
The Soccer Laduma League is powered by PUMA, with the support of Mettlestate and Gaming Ventures, who are eSports and gaming content specialists.
With the objective of growing awareness as well as accessibility to large-scale eSports events, Soccer Laduma’s vision is to create a hub for players of all skill levels, not just top tier competitive players. Any player is eligible to enter, which is likely to enhance spectator value, as there is the exciting opportunity for new local talent to emerge.

There will be three groups: Amateur, Premier and Legends League, with separate group stages running over the season. The Grand Finals will be live-streamed to Mettlestate’s Twitch TV at the end of July.
“We’re incredibly excited to be launching the Soccer Laduma League and to have the guiding expertise of Mettlestate and Gaming Ventures handholding us in our foray into the world of gaming. We share their vision of having this league becoming the league of choice for players of all skill sets across South Africa. With PUMA coming on board to power the initiative, we have no doubt that together we will be creating a world-class product that will service the South African gaming community’s growing passion for eSport,” said Clint Roper, Soccer Laduma GM.
