Chess Club Jugović

The club was founded in 1956. For a long time it has been a member of lower leagues but in 1995 with the arrival of Mr. Miroslav Kopanja at the head of the club, it has slowly turned into one of the largest and strongest clubs in the country. Today Chess club “Jugović” from Kać is a big club, and it’s both male and female teams compete in the first league of Serbia. The club was Serbian Cup winner in 2013, and in 2017, in the men`s competition. Some of our best grandmasters have played and still play for the club: GM Predrag Nikolić, GM Ivan Ivanišević, GM Miloš Perunović, etc. The club has its own chess school, and at the present moment I am at the head of the school.
