About postponing the world Cup

In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) the Russian Ministry of Sport has made a decision to cancel every international sport event that was to be held in our country from March 16 until further notice.

Participation of foreign athletes in all-Russian tournaments is also to be restricted.

Considering that it seems impossible for the tournament to be held as scheduled, the Russian Go Federation has sent a request to the International Go Federation to postpone the Championship.

The Championship management team along with the government of Primorsky Krai do not stop preparing for such a significant event.

We hope that the virus and the economy situation will stabilize soon.
The new date of the World Amateur Go Championship will be announced later.
