Expo 2020 Dubai: World Online School Chess

Chess24 is providing the technical backup for an exciting new project: the World Online School Chess Tournament, which culminates in an over-the-board final in Dubai, United Arab Emirates in March 2021. The event is being organised by the Spain Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, together with Acción Cultural Española (AC/E) and the support of Expo 2020.

The tournament, which is completely free, will feature online qualifiers between educational institutions from all around the world. It's for any boys and girls born after 31 December 2003, so Under 16, and will begin in April 2020. The winning teams will play a final in person in Dubai in March 2021, during Expo 2020.  

The goal of the tournament is to spread the message that chess can be a powerful educational tool, which is why we want to get as many schools as possible from all around the world to participate in this event.
