Under the auspices of the Egyptian Chess Federation, presided over by Hesham Elgendy, the Eastern Company is organising and sponsoring the Golden Cleopatra International Chess Championship, which will be held from 13 to 21 December. This prestigious championship dates back to 1997.
This year’s championship will take place at the Mundial Hall at the company’s club. The hall is the most modern in Egypt, and many international chess championships have been organised there, including the International Chess Championship which took place in April.
There will be 300 players from 10 countries participating. Mohamed Osman Haroun, head of the Eastern Company’s board of directors, said this is a good opportunity to benefit tourism in Egypt.
