About Norway Chess

Norway Chess was organised for the first time in May 2013, and was the first supertournament arranged in Norway. The tournament was a success for both players and organisers.

The tournament has a unique twist by  using a variety of locations for the event. We wish by this to get maximum attention to the whole region of Stavanger. You can read more about the venues for the 2014 tournament here.

The tournament includes:

  • Super tournament with the majority of the top 10 ranked players
  • School tournament with hundreds of children
  • Celebrity tournament with a range of celebrities to show their chess skills

2nd – 13th of June 2014, the world’s chess stars will meet again in the Stavanger region.
Read about the confirmed players to super tournament here.In addition to the super-tournament, teaching chess in schools and having the school tournament are also very important for us. This year there will be given chess classes to over 1,200 students in the region.

The school tournament is for children in 5th to 7th grade and will be held at the Science Factory on the 6th of June.
