The playing venue

Important Venue Update! 

Dear Chess Enthusiasts,

Due to overwhelming interest and the significant participation of top international players in the International Youth Chess Festival, the organizing committee has made the decision to change the venue location from Madinah to Jeddah.

This decision aims to facilitate the arrival of attendees and participants from outside the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and provide an optimal environment for chess enthusiasts from around the world.

Ramada by Wyndham Continental Jeddah Hotel
Palestine Street, 21472 Jeddah, Saudi Arabia

Your passion for chess is our inspiration!


Please note that the players are requested to be at the venue at least 30 minutes before the start of the round to proceed to the security checks. Furthermore, the participants are not allowed to bring non-authorized items (Mobiles, Electronic Devices etc.) with them to the playing venue. Storage facilities will be available at the venue for deposit of such items.

Please note that possession of non-authorized items in person at the playing venue will lead to forfeiture/loss of the game as per FIDE Fair Play regulations.
