Hello everyone,

Here is an important press release from FIDE regarding the World School Chess Championship 2014: 

Dear Chess Friends,

It was decided to hold the World School Chess Championship 2014 in the Americas. The championship was scheduled to start on 10th April 2014 in Peru. Five months before the official invitation should have been distributed with all details for the National Federations . 

The American Continental Board has informed us that various internal matters in Peru Chess Federation didn’t allow the preparation of the Championship.

Upon the proposal of the Continental President of the Americas Jorge Vega, FIDE decided to respect the right of America Continent and reschedules the World School Chess Championship to Brazil from 26 November to 4 December 2014 under conditions that will be approved by the FIDE Presidential Board. 
All the tournament details will be published with the official invitation.
