Since we want to carry out this year’s edition of Uppsala Young Champions in a safe way, we of course follow all the recommendations given by the Swedish Public Health Agency. We also follow the development of the coronavirus and if there are any important changes related to the competition, they will be announced here. Some of the adjustments we make are these:
- We only accept so many players so that there can be sufficient distance between the players in the room.
- If nothing changes no audience is unfortunately welcome to the venue, but we have live broadcasts where you can follow all games.
- Access to hand disinfection is available and we remind you of the importance of good hand hygiene. In addition, we disinfect the boards and pieces between each round.
- If you feel ill or have any symptoms of illness, you are unfortunately not welcome to participate in the competition.
- We greet each other before the game and thank you for a good match, but not with a handshake.
Before you book a ticket to travel to Uppsala Young Champions, we recommend that you check the rules that your airline has. You also have to check which entry rules apply to Sweden, but as the situation is right now, everyone who travels from the EU and a lot of other countries is very welcome!
If we just take it careful, the corona virus will not stand in the way for our tournament!
