The World Schools Individual Championship was held from December 2 till December 12 in Sochi. More than 400 young chess players from 30 countries took part in the event, for the first time ever hosted in Russia.

In the spring of 2016, the Presidential Board of FIDE unanimously supported the bid made by Russian Chess Federation. The opportunity to organize one of the key children events of the FIDE calendar was contested by a number of other countries, including Turkey, China, and India.

The World Schools Chess Championship is held once a year under the aegis of FIDE. The tournament is divided into six age categories, and is open for winners of individual school competitions aged from 7 to 17.

The organizers of the event are FIDE, RCF, and International Schools Chess Union.
