The registration deadline
without an extra fee for the late enrolment has been prolonged by 7th July 2021.
As last year, the festival will
take place in the newly reconstructed and air-conditioned halls of the IDEON congress center in Pardubice.
The valid restrictions of the
Ministry of health and National sports agency will be observed throughout the festival. Participants will sign a
declaration about vaccination, passed illness, having the negative antigen or PCR test. Alternatively, it will be
possible to take an antigen test at the venue for 2 EUR.
Movement at the venue will be
probably restricted by wearing the respirators, although the participants will play without the masks. Further news
will be announced at the festival website.
We will put most effort to
provide you as comfortable conditions as possible and believe that we will all enjoy the event.
AVE-KONTAKT was commissioned by
the European Chess Federation to organize this important chess event.
With this event, we want to
follow up on the successful World Championship of senior teams from last year. This year, the event will move to the
beautiful Hotel Don Giovanni (where the 3 years of the prestigious Prague International Chess Festival have taken place
here), which offers great conditions for play, accommodation, meals and leisure activities. We also managed to
negotiate interesting prices for accommodation (eg 1 bed in a 2-bed room with breakfast for 30 EUR, etc.) Take
advantage of the unique opportunity to play with chess legends.
Detailed regulations can be found
from 5th July 2021 at the event website ESTCC2021.NET.
Teams and players can participate regardless of their rating.
