The Organizing Board of the 7th Teenagers and Children's Chess Tournament for Hai Duong Newspaper Cup held a meeting on July 19 afternoon to realize the tournament organizing plan.
The 7th Teenagers and Children's Chess Tournament for Hai Duong Newspaper Cup will be held at the Provincial Gymnasium for the first time due to a sharp increase in the number of players registering for competition
The tournament is co-organized by the Hai Duong Newspaper, the Department of Culture, Sports, and Tourism, and the Department of Education and Training.
This year, the tournament is to take place from August 1 - 3.
It is expected that 200 players will compete in the tournament, double last year's figure and the largest number ever.
Due to the sudden increase in the number of players, the organizers changed the competing venue from the Provincial Children's House to the Provincial Gymnasium and would invite national referees to run the tournament.
To serve the tournament, the organizers set up three sub-units: manpower; propaganda, finance, reception, reward, and fundraising; and facilities and competing venue.
