    How to attend

    The FIDE Grand Swiss takes place in Riga, Latvia. The 2019 tournament was held in Douglas, the capital of the Isle of Man, a British dependency. The 2021 tournament was originally scheduled to be played there as well, but was moved "due to the strict COVID-19 restrictions still in place in the Isle of Man and the UK," according to FIDE. The change of location did not affect the dates and format of the 2021 event.
