Last Tuesday, we finally were able to play a tournament over the board in the GZ Bachwiesen again. Congrats to Dimitris for winning in front of Roger and Murat! You can find the ranking on our homepage a bit further down.

After the promotion to league 4 in the Swiss Team Battle we will play there the upcoming Tuesday May 18th 2021 starting at 19:30 (time control 5+3):

And some good news at the end: With an impressive finish we collected at the end 727 “Vereinsbons” and a direct donation in the project “Support Your Sport”. Altogether we received almost 260 CHF which we will spend on youth development! Many thanks to all of you for supporting us!

Letzi participating at “Support your Sport”

We are now officially registered at “Support your Sport”

Who buys at Migros can collect “Vereinsbons”. In case please ask the cashier or get back to the customer service in your local shop. Those vouchers can be spent for a project of a club; e.g. for our team on this page
https://supportyoursport.migros.ch/de/vereine/sc-letzi-zuerich/

Just scan your voucher on this site – please let us know if you would need help with this.

We would like to spend the obtained amount on our youth development!

Please do not treat this as a request to go for additional shopping or for an extra donation to the club via this platform! However, just with a registration to this initiative we will receive support from the Migros subvention fund.
