” There’s nothing quite like a Chess Olympiad”

The Chess Olympiad is a biennial chess tournament in which teams representing nations of the world compete. FIDE organises the tournament and selects the host nation. 

“It’s official now….India will host the 44th World Chess Olympiad 2022 at Chennai!” the All-India Chess Federation added on its Twitter page.

World Chess Olympiad 44th edition is hosted in Chennai, Tamilnadu, India, from 26th July 2022 to 8th August 2022. The Chess Olympiad is a team competition held every two years in which teams from around 190 countries participate in a two-week tournament.

Meanwhile, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin also expressed happiness over the achievement and called it a ‘proud moment’. “Delighted that the Chess Capital of India is set to host the 44th Chess Olympiad! A proud moment for Tamil Nadu! Chennai warmly welcomes all the Kings and Queens from around the world!” tweeted MK Stalin.

The 44th Chess Olympiad 2022 will be the second major world event in the country after the World Championship match in 2013 between Viswanathan Anand and Magnus Carlsen in Chennai.

We are delighted at Chess Gaja that the biggest chess event of the year is being held in Tamil Nadu, as TN is the home of our organisation! We are looking forward to this chess extravaganza!
