The partnership will be in the upcoming “Pro Clubs Africa Champions League,” which will see 20 teams from across the continent battle it out for a prize pool of R3,500 ($208.38). There will also be prizes for the individual performances, as well as a prize for the overall goal of the tournament.

“I always love supporting local gaming and esports communities. I’m a firm believer that support at a grassroots level is key to building a sustainable industry for all.” He further stated 

Glenn further spoke about the partnership, praising the SAVFL, stating, “It’s been a while since we got involved in a local scene from a team owner perspective and what the guys over at SAVFL are building is amazing. If you’re a fan of FIFA esports, then watch this space.”

The draw for the “Pro Clubs Africa Champions League” was held on July 23 during a live stream as 20 of some of the best teams on the continent were drawn into four groups.


According to the NIBBLE Esports official website, they are “more than a premium South African lifestyle brand” and are “more than a gaming culture and an esports organization.”

They are a movement dedicated to crafting a community where voices are heard, visions are realised, and legacies are established.
