The World Women Team Conquest will have its fifth episode this weekend with a women’s team match between Ukraine and Latin America.
The match will be played on seven boards on June, Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 at 12:00 GMT-3 at KGS. Three boards will be played on Saturday and the remaining four on Sunday.
On the Latin American side, the Ibero American Federation Gender Commission’ assembled the team with players from seven different countries, so it promises to be a diverse encounter. For further information on the match, you may check this link.
The World Women Team Conquest (WWTC) is an initiative born in France, and basically consists of matching balanced female teams of 5–10 players in exhibition events and broadcasts with live commentary on Twitch.
The objective, in words of the founders, is ‘making visible that these women players exist, and that despite their small number, they are just as talented! Putting them forward, whatever their level, is helping them find their place in clubs and federations, but also encouraging the arrival of new players.’
This is the first time that France is not playing in the match, giving hope to broaden the movement into new territories and regions.
