Celtic Nations Online Junior Team Invitational 2020

I wish to confirm from my correspondence with the organiser of the Liverpool Quadrangular that due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, there will be no Liverpool Quadrangular 2020.

In its place, I am pleased to announce that there will be an online tournament on the weekend of the 5th and 6th of December. It will take place between Scotland, Ireland, Wales and - following their performances at the recent European Online Youth Championships - Jersey.

In the same way as the Liverpool Quadrangular normally, there will be an Under-12 (10 boards), Under-14 (10 boards) and an Under-16 (6 boards) competition playing for game points.

The time control will be 25 minutes each with a 5 second increment. Each nation will play the other twice with 3 rounds on Saturday 5th December and 3 rounds on Sunday 6th.

The competition will take place on Lichess with players competing from home.

The International Junior Selection Committee will convene later this month to select Scottish teams for this tournament and following this, I will make contact with those selected.
