The European Janggi Federation (EJF) in cooperation with the local host, the
German Janggi Federation (GJF) as well as “Johannes-Brahms-Konservatorium” is happy to announce the organization of a the

1st European JANGGI Youth Championship on

26th & 27th of October 2019 in Hamburg.

Our efforts in promoting the game among youth players – especially in Europe – forced us to do the next step: organizing a European Championship in Janggi for the youth – in a game with a long history and highly respected especially in Korea; also referred to as “Korean Chess”.

Some minor groups of children already play seriously Janggi in different parts of Europe. The European Janggi Federation reflects on this development by organizing the 1st European Youth Championship 2019 for participants below 18 years of age.

This tournament is played in an Open format, which entitles all interested players – living in Europe – to participate.
