All Auckland Chess Association events will remain cancelled while under COVID-19 Level 2 restrictions.
Announcement from the New Zealand Chess Federation re Covid-19 Level 2
The anticipated upcoming transition to Level 2 restrictions will not affect the current position for chess. No official NZCF over-the-board chess tournaments or NZCF/FIDE rated games will take place in New Zealand on Level 2. Two further upcoming tournaments have now been cancelled, the New Zealand Junior Championship, and the North island Championship, both scheduled for this July.
Because chess is a game where the players sit indoors in close proximity, over lengthy periods, NZCF Council takes the view that New Zealand needs to move to Level 1 before official tournament competition can resume.
