EIGHTY-FIVE primary and secondary schools from the country’s 10 provinces are set to converge for the inaugural edition of the Crystal Candy National Schools Chess League Finals in Harare this weekend.
Zimbabwe Chess Federation (ZCF) interim president Mucha Mkanganwi praised Crystal Candy for coming on board to support the schools’ chess league, which kicks off on Saturday.
“The event promises to be intense and exciting, and such competitions are what our sport needs to grow,” said Mkanganwi.
“We are grateful to Crystal Candy Zimbabwe for their invaluable support and commitment in making this league a resounding success, as well as their determination to grow the sport in Zimbabwe.
“Their commitment to nurturing young chess talent is commendable and aligns with ZCF’s vision of promoting chess as a sport and educational tool,” he said.
The tournament started off with over 150 schools, but that number was trimmed after provincial finals that were held between May and June.
