Checkmating Racism

On 21st March, during the European Action Week Against Racism, which is known as the day for Elimination of Racial Discrimination an online kids tournament was organized by Singapore’s Overseas Family School (OFS) with Bayern Munich Football Club (Rot Gegen Rassismus). A total of ten teams from seven countries attracted a total of 363 players, aged 5-18, including 116 from OFS.

OFS shot a lovely short video for this event in their school in Singapore which can be watched here and Chessbase published Dijana Dengler’s report on their German and English websites: FC Bayern also made a short video (German with English subtitles):

The event was such a big success that there are plans to make it an annual event.
