School Chess tournament

The School Chess Tournament Expo 2020 Dubai will be held at the Spain Pavilion from November 25th to November 29th.

The in-person final of the school Chess tournament Expo 2020 Dubai begins on Thursday, November 25th with the chess player Judit Polgar performing the honour kickoff, and will celebrate the award ceremony on Monday, November 29th. This tournament, organized by Acción Cultural Española (AC / E), hosted a first online phase in collaboration with Chess24 in which participated 283 teams made up of teenagers from 54 countries all around the world.

The presence of Chess at the Spain Pavilion has a special meaning, due to the connection of Spain with the Arab culture through this game, as can be seen in its exhibition tour Glimpses. The games are played in the Multipurpose Room of the Pavilion and those who do not have an invitation to the event can follow the tournament live on the screen placed on the outside stage of the Pavilion.

On the first day of the Tournament, Judit Polgar will do the honour kickoff at 3:00 p.m., and the rounds will be played at the following schedule:

-10:00 a.m round A1

-11:30 a.m round A2

-4:00 p.m round B1

-5:30 p.m round B2

-7:00 p.m round B3
