Russia has the biggest and fastest-growing Go community in Europe.
Russian players became European champions 15 times in the last 20 years and the Russian Go team is traditionally one of the strongest in Europe. That is one of the reasons why the 41st World Amateur Go Championship 2020 will be held in Vladivostok.
It should be noted that in 2019 alone, the Russian Go Federation organized over 450 tournaments. If you want to know this year’s schedule, you can check it on gofederation.ru — the federation’s official website.
