11th Cup of Rector, Match of the Champions

25th-29th March in Kharkov, Ukraine

The 11th Cup of Rector is scheduled to take place on 25th-29th March in Kharkov, Ukraine, in a completely different format. Unlike the previous year, when there were women and men closed invitational tournaments, this time a match between “PVK KievChess”, the bronze medalist from the recent European Club Cup, and Kharkov’s “Law Academy” will be played over five rounds.

The time control will be 90 minutes for each player to finish the game with extra 30 seconds for each move from the start (Fischer system) and the games will be broadcasted live on the ICC. Both teams are lining their strongest available rosters and we will get to see some of the top Ukrainian Grandmasters in action.
