Location

The tournament will take place at Ole-Johan Dahls hus located at Gaustadalleen 23.

Easiest way to get there from downtown Oslo is by subway line 4 or 5 to Forskningsparken subway stop, or by tram 17 or 18 to Forskningsparken tram stop. From there it’s only a minute or two to walk to the playing area.

We will try to offer private accommodation to everyone who wants this. If you desire accommodation make sure to note it on the registration page, and we’ll see what we can do.

Travel support for Norwegian players

If you want to attend the tournament, but travel expenses turn out to be too much we can help support your trip by up to 500 NOK. To be eligible for this support you need to be a resident of Norway, and either a student or without income. If this support will be the difference between you attending and not, send us a mail at oslo.goklubb@gmail.com and we’ll see what we can do. Our economy doesn’t allow us to support everyone, so the earlier you apply for support the higher the chances are of you getting it.

Registration (non-binding)
