4th FIDE World Junior Chess Championship
for Players with Disabilities
New Dates! June 28 – July 5, 2021
Denver, Colorado, USA
Keeping our Junior Players safe.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Dear Junior Players, Chess Families and Members of the International Chess Community:
In light of recent developments surrounding COVID-19, the health risks, travel restrictions and quarantines being enforced around the world, we are heeding the advice of public health experts, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).
With this in mind, out of an abundance of caution and concern for the well-being of Junior Players with Disabilities, our team and chess families, we have decided to postpone this year’s event in an attempt to minimize the players exposure to the virus.
Nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of the Junior Players and we take seriously our responsibility as the organizers of this wonderful event.
During this difficult time, we believe that chess has the ability to keep us connected, and we encourage you all to embrace and support our chess communities beyond the tournament halls.
If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us at email@example.com.
We look forward to seeing you in Denver, Colorado, USA in 2021!
Yours for Chess,
IO Beatriz Marinello
On behalf of the Organizing Committee
