In a celebration of sportsmanship and frienship, the University of Konstanz team participating in the PCU Chess Cup 2023 has been awarded the prestigious Fair Play Award. This recognition stems from their exemplary fair play behavior, as acknowledged by the Referees, Organizing Committee and the event staff.
The team’s commitment to fair play went beyond the chessboard, resonating through their interactions with fellow teams. Referees and organizers noted positive attitude of the players, graciousness in victory and defeat, and adherence to the principles of fair play throughout the tournament.
The Fair Play Award is not merely a recognition of victories on the chessboard but a testament to the dedication to the principles of integrity, respect, and equity.
