SAPL (South Africa Pro League)

The Souzern Lions League is a proud partner of FACEIT for Southern Africa. Thanks to our wonderful friends at FACEIT, we will be able to achieve our primary goal of helping to advance the state of local competitive esports.

Through our Organizer platform and Hub-network, Souzern Lions currently offer three individual league divisions: Pro, Diamond and Gold. To participate, you will need to be a subscribed member. Pricing can be found directly on the organizer page or on the associated Hubs.

Souzern Lions plans to offer even more to the CS:GO community in Southern Africa. With R5,000 in monthly prize pools awarded to the top-ranked players in the Pro League. The greatest players will receive FACEIT Points which can be used to purchase awesome real world or in-game items from the FACEIT Store. There are even cash prizes for the top performers in Pro League every month.

You’ll also be glad to know that we have some exciting tournaments in the pipeline. Look out for 5v5, 2v2 and 1v1 divisions, tournaments and cups in the coming months. We’re working on bringing some of the biggest international qualifiers to local shores too.

We at Souzern Lions have very strict rules in place to ensure we foster competitive integrity and promote fair play. We want everyone to feel like they are part of the Souzern Lions family. Ours is a league where everyone can develop, get noticed and one day become a professional CS:GO competitor. All our local servers and hubs are protected and secured by FACEIT Anti-Cheat. With the FACEIT client installed, you can rest assured that your games are unlikely to be anything other than great.

The Pro League with a prize pool of R5000 every month!


Gold League

This is where most of the action starts, as you will need to learn your trade here in order to progress to the Diamond League. After you have reached level six on your FACEIT account, Diamond League will be unlocked. It is important to communicate as much as possible in this division and respect one another. This is where you will learn the fundamentals of team play. If you do not have a microphone, we highly recommend you communicate through in-game text chat. You can only solo queue with captains mode. The highest players on the leaderboard will be assigned as captains.

Diamond League

This is where things will get a little difficulty as more is expected out of you as an individual and team player. In Gold League the rewards have been increased, meaning your opponents and teammates will also be battling for them. Every month, two players who top the leaderboard, will be promoted and trialed to the Pro League. Diamond League will be a proving ground for multiple upcoming talents in the scene. This Hub is a First In First Out (FIFO) solo queue system.

Pro League

The Pro League is an invite-only division for the country’s top players, the best and brightest young upcoming players. In the Pro League, you will enjoy the highest quality games and compete against the best possible opponents. This Hub offers a First In First Out (FIFO) solo queue system. We don’t accept applications to join this division, but we do scout talented players who we feel are deserving of a spot. If you’re good enough and you put in the effort, you’ll eventually make it into the Pro League. Try win a share of R5,000 every month!
