On Saturday, May 20, 2017, the "New Hopes of Chess" project was successfully completed for the fifth year in a row. And this year, there were 7 different tournaments held in the Central Serbian Army Home in Belgrade, where the chess strength was seized by 108 contestants.

The ceremonial opening of the event was marked by the children of Preschool Institution "11. April "from New Belgrade with the hymn of its chess tournaments" Chess is a Real Spell ". The Malaysians once again included the entire audience in their poem and performance, so the atmosphere was at its peak since the very beginning.
