Sharp Kids from The Philippines continue to come with a very large number of excellent players and are currently unbeatable in Division East A. First appearance of Федерация Шахмат Республики Башкортостан (Bashkortostan Chess Federation, Russia) in East A group was very successful, bringing them to second place, while Eminent Chess Academy (New Delhi, India) came third.

Another drama in Division West: just one point difference between Arriba PERÚ and Veracruz México. Third came Los Dragones del Ajedrez (Peru). Division West (former America Division) was stagnant for some time, but now returned to big numbers again, and several new teams want to join in the competition, so it is possible that in 2021. organizers will make one additional group accommodate them all.
