Chess Festival Moscow Open to be held in 2015

moscow-openThe Moscow Chess Federation will organize the 11th Moscow Open in 2015, the MCF Board decided at the meeting held on 18th June.

The recent happenings at the Russian State Social University, which hosted the event since its inception in 2005, “may jeopardize the Festival”. MCF Vice-President Nikita Kim said – “Unfortunately, at the moment there is no clear guarantee that RSSU will be ready to hold the event.”

However, the MCF is ready to find the alternative venue if necessary. The main partner is defined and in the middle of July the location and conditions of the Festival will be announced.

In recent years the number of participants in the Festival consistently exceeded 1500.
