The biggest number of the participants of the FIDE World Youth U14, U16, U18 Championships has arrived to the capital of Ugra. The players and their accompanying persons were greeted in the airport in a traditional Russian way – with songs, accordion playing and local Siberian treats – nuts and cranberries.
The opening ceremony of the Championships will take place today in the concert and theater center “Ugra-Classic”. And tomorrow the first round of the tournament will be played. 412 players from 62 countries have arrived to Khanty-Mansiysk to participate in the FIDE World Youth U14, U16, U18 Championships.
