Judit Polgar’s Global Chess Festival 2021 sponsored by Morgan Stanley will be a hybrid festival: we hope to meet you again in person in Budapest or online in a large-scale program brimming with creativity and innovation.

The richness of chess is highlighted in presentations about Sport, Art, Science and Education. Chess lovers worldwide can take part in tournaments, simuls and chess classes from beginner-level to masterclass. The Chess Artistry Competition, organized by the Judit Polgar Chess Foundation in memory of Pal Benko (1928-2019), challenges study composers from all ages to send in their best creations. With the Goodwill Ambassador of Chess Awards we express our gratitude to outstanding personalities promoting our game. As always we welcome chess events from all over the world to join in on October 9, 2021 to celebrate the power and inspiration of chess.
