The 1st FIDE World Cadets Rapid & Blitz Chess Championships 2017 will be held in Minsk, Belarus, from 1st of June (arrivals) to 5th of June (departures) 2017. The championships will be held in Palace of Sport in Minsk, Belarus.
The deadline for the registration is May 1st, 2017. Given the short timing prior to the start of the event and also that this is the first ever world championships for these age groups and time controls, direct registration by players will be accepted. Players may also register through their Federation if this facilitates their task. Incomplete registrations will not be accepted. All players or officials need to have a FIDE ID.
