Dear Players and Guests
yazicDear Players and Guests,

Turkish Chess Federation has been playing an important role in world chess for 12 years. Starting with the 34th Chess Olympiad held in Istanbul, we organized World and European Championships at different levels. We succeeded in training new titled players and strong International Masters and Grand Masters at the last.

Under 16 Chess Olympiad is one of the most important events in our schedule this year. We already hosted this event before in Denizli, Agri- Dogubeyazit, Mersin, Manisa-Akhisar, Burdur and Kocaeli. This year we will organize World Chess Olympiad in ─░stanbul at the same time with Under 16 Chess Olympiad. By this way you can see this great chess olympiad when playing or observing many other events.

I am sure you will experience one of your most memorable organizations and maybe future world champions are amongst us already, who knows?! I am grateful to Governor of Istanbul Mr. Huseyin Avni Mutlu, Mayor of Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality Mr. Kadir Topbas, General Director of Sports Mr. Mehmet Baykan in the name of the world and Turkish chess family.

Dear chess players, parents and trainers,

I hope you will experience the Turkish hospitality during your visit to Istanbul and will return home back with the warmest feelings. I wish you success and hope you have a good time here.

Best Regards,

Ali Nihat YAZICI
The President of Turkish Chess Federation
