Sunday 6 December 10.30-12.00
The world´s favourite board game meets the world´s favourite team game. A great combination in student camps and also the attraction of the most popular annual chess event in Munich. Football academies are finding that intelligent boys develop their playing skills faster. Can chess help to foster game intelligence in football talents? How can chess and football go together in education? Is chess the missing ingredient in many football charity projects for disadvantaged youth? A former football pro and world class GM who is coaching both games, and a chess coach at Brentford FC share experience and insight.
