Unpublished! Chessboards at the top!


International Chess Festival in La Plagne from August 2 to 8, 2021
It's a first !

Playing chess at an altitude of 2,000 m, in the open air and in the heart of the sumptuous alpine panorama offered by La Plagne, this is a unique program! The Sun Valley residence in Plagne Soleil and its huge esplanade will host this first Plagne edition of the International Chess Festival.

Chess is on the rise and it is not the success of the famous Netflix series that will contradict us. The event already brings together more than 300 registrants, double what the organizers had estimated.
Among the headliners from all over the world, the young Corsican prodigy Marc Andria Maurizzi, passed International Master at only 12 years old.

Welcome to the game of La Plagne!
