Closed Tournaments and a hope for Open

30 Apr 2021

The 3rd annual Prague International Chess Festival will take place from 13 to 20 June 2021. Considering current anti-covid measures, the organising team was forced to reduce the Festival programme. Only the main Masters group and youth Futures round-robins will take place instead of the usual 3 headline tournaments.

"Despite all obstacles we believed it would be possible to organise the Festival this year as well. And we managed to succeed," says Petr Boleslav, the director of the Festival. "But we need to keep our feet on the ground. The only thing which is clear right now is we will be able to organise the two round-robins, even if the current restrictions stay in place.“ There's still hope for organising the open and rating tournaments and the preliminary regulations are already public. The final decision regarding whether this part of the Festival will be held depends on the restrictions in place at the beginning of June.
