About us


The Israeli association was formed in 1996 by a small group of players that strived to reach the world championship.

The association's goal was and remains the promotion of Go as a sport in Israel, growing strong players and introducing the game to new audiences.

We organize competitions, support club meetings, nominate players for international events and more.

Here at the IGA we are always happy to help veteran and new players alike to enjoy the game of Go. You are welcome to ask questions and make suggestions – that's what we're here for.
