What is The World Students GO OZA Championship?
The World Students GO OZA Championship is a championship in which 16 students chosen from various countries around the world, including from Asia, compete. It was founded in 2003, and the 12th championship will be held in February 2014. Not only the players but also the organizers are students: it’s an international championship run by students for students.

This championship is held not only to decide the world’s number one student player but also to promote exchange among Go-playing students around the world. Besides the Go competition, sightseeing events are also organized for the participants.

Until the 7th championship, the players were chosen by recommendation by their national Go associations, but as of the 8th championship, preliminary championships are being held on the Internet with the cooperation of Pandanet Inc. Changing the selection method in this way means that more students can participate, so in 2013 we can expect a high-level championship with many strong players from around the world competing.

Yu Kimura, Representative Manager, The All-Japan Students GO Association

*1 The Japanese representatives will be the winner of the domestic 12th All Japan Students Oza championship and the highest-placed female player.
*2 When the representatives are from the same country, the highest-placed player from another country will be chosen.
However, no change will be made if male and female players from the same country are chosen (because one of the objectives of this championship is to promote exchange among students).
●When the player who has acquired the right to be the representative becomes unable to play, the next-ranked player will take his or her place.
●In areas where the players are divided into male and female, separate championships will be held for males and females.
●Each area will have a preliminary tournament to select their representative(s).
●In principle, the number of players to advance to the main championship will be 16, but the allowance for each area may vary according to the number of participants.

championship rules: Both Preliminary and the main championship are to use Japanese rules. The time allowance is 60 minutes, followed by 30-second byo-yomi. All games are to be played on even. In the Preliminary, the colours will be chosen by computer and by nigiri in the main championship.

·In principle, games are to be played at home. The championship office at The All-Japan Students GO Association will carry out a survey of access, so please inform us if you will be playing at a go club or surrounded by a group of people.
·Proper greetings should be made at the beginning and end of games. Also, slandering the opponent is expressly forbidden. If something happens, please inform the championship office.
·If a bad breach of manners or a violation has been detected, disqualification is possible even after the result of the game has been confirmed.
