Checkmate Corona!

Updated: Apr 1

Are you still crying angry tears over the cancellation of Milan-San Remo, Gent-Wevelgem and the Tour? Are you fed up of yet another game of times up at the kitchen table? Then challenge yourself because ALS has the solution for you! AN ONLINE CHESS TOURNAMENT! Which is being organised for the 19th year running!

The Antwerp Students Chess League is a mixed individual competition and is open to anyone with an UAntwerp Plus pass or Sportstickers.

You can already start to practice online at Lichess.org. From 6 April onwards, you'll automatically be assigned opponents whom you can charge at with your knight and bishop to hopefully become the UAntwerp chess champion on 12 May.

You can register until 5 April (23:59) at http://www.sportsticker.be/sporten/asl-schaken-online/

This article was written for fromyourkot.be, an online platform that was created in times of corona at the request of the University of Antwerp.

Are you keeping busy and staying creative in quarantine? Let us know!


Take care and stay safe
