Elite Gaming is owned and managed by Jean van Jaarsveld (PSN ID: JvJ-17) and he started his console gaming career in 1995 with the launch of Mortal Kombat 3 on The Sega Mega Drive II. Once his parents could afford to buy him a PlayStation he immediately had games that he called his favourites, Gran Turismo, Metal Gear Solid and Rayman to name a few. From there, his interest in gaming continued to grow. Now Jean is the proud Owner and Manager of Elite Gaming as a Company, with various competitive teams and “EGSA” as a clan in the #CodZA Community.
Elite Gaming was founded in Jan 2018 and started as an importing company specialising in Scuf Controllers, gaming peripherals and accessories. In addition, we source quality used goods for customers that need specific gear e.g. Astro Headsets, Mixamps, PlayStation Vita’s, Kontrolfreek products and even LTE Routers. Once we kick-started the business and established an identity on social media, we turned our attention to starting a competitive Call of Duty team.
Towards the end of May 2018, a competitive Call of Duty team was put together and consisted of the following founding members:
Our first scrim was played the 4th of June against MAG7 and it proved to us that we had to put in so much more effort to achieve the goals that we had set ourselves as a team. We are incredibly fortunate to have such dedicated and like-minded players with the same vision for the team.
We have partnered with a courier company “MDS Collivery” that insures and transports all of our stock to the intended recipients, from Ermelo to Cape Town and everywhere in-between.
