Time to make friends!
17.06.2018 - 08:38 von Jonathan Carlstedt

The small town of Bad Blankenburg with about 7000 residents will be the chess-capitol of europe from the 11th of July to the 19th of July, when the european youth team chess championchip (eytcc) under 18 and the new section under 12 will take place in the heart of the free state of thuringia in germany.
Our invitation was published a short time ago on our webpage. The tournament is played in teams of 4 in the boys competition and in teams of 2 in the girls section. It will be decided in 7 rounds of swiss system. The place where the magic will happen is the so called „Landessportschule Bad Blankenburg“, not only well equiped to host a high level chess tournament, but ready to meet the needs for physical activities during a tough chess tournament.
Tournament director IM Vökler and his organising team are looking forward to welcome guests from all around europe in Bad Blankenburg. We are excited to see the ever green hard fought chess battles with our friends from Poland, Czech republic, Hungary and Slovenia, not without hopefully welcoming new teams from France, the Netherlands, Russia and Norway. With this countries being named, a lot of europe is not yet covered and of course we are happy to have as many teams from as many countries as possible fighting for the european youth team chess championchip in Bad Blankenburg.
That being said, german under 18 boys team is the current titleholder of the eytcc, besides being good hosts german players have another challenge to face – defending the title! No pressure ;-)

German chess federation is celebrating „the year of Lasker“ in 2018. Emanual Lasker, born on 24th of december in 1868 is still the only german chess world champion. It´s time to celebrate his 150th birthday. The birthday of a man who not only saw the bright side of life, facing as a jewish german citizen in the 30s the darkest time in german history. We will do everything in our power to make it a tournament worth honoring Lasker, celebrating friendship and tolerance in europe.

Warm welcome and see you soon in Bad Blankenburg!

I warmly welcome you to the European Youth Team Chess Championship 2018 in Bad Blankenburg!

Around 200 young chess players from all over Europe have come here to us in Thuringia to measure themselves at the “royal game”, as the game of chess is also known. This is the first time that the European Youth Team Championship takes place in Germany. I am especially delighted that it was possible to bring this German premiere to our Thuringian State Sport School in Bad Blankenburg. I am certain that Bad Blankenburg and the Thuringian State Sport School will be excellent hosts, and that they will do everything to ensure that the chess talent of around twenty European countries will feel welcome and at home.
