2018 We-Go Open Tournament

Chinese Version

Since its establishment in 2016, We-Go Club has gathered a large number of Go lovers who are adhering to the mission of popularizing Go and creating a professional Go playing environment for beginners. For the first time, We-Go will be hosting an Open tournament for all ages. The event will be divided into two major groups: the adult group, and the children’s group. We will set up qualifying competitions for the children category, where winners will be allowed to qualify for the major event competition. The adult category will be an open format, and those who score well will receive prizes and other bonuses. Whether you are an admirer of Go, play go for fun, or just want to learn more about the game, we welcome you all to journey with us on our mission to popularize Go throughout the World!
