There is little doubt that to be 'the' flag-bearer at an official international sporting event is indeed an honour.

"MSSA's flag-bearer is an outstanding person, who bears South Africa's beloved flag honouring it above all others," said Colin Websterm, General Secretary at Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA).

"Thus, the selection by the International eSports Federation (IeSF) of Port Elizabethan Gregory Wessels to bear South Africa's flag at the Opening Ceremony of the 9th World Championships has very much honoured Gregory.

"As South Africa's flag-bearer, Gregory joins a veritable group of who's who in international eSports."

Websterm said that dignatories that shall attend the opening ceremony include members of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), Olympic Committee of Asia (OCA), and of the International e-Sports Federation.
