Hi everyone,

The official website for the 40th Chess Olympiad is now online. The 40th edition of this great event that brings the world's best chess players together to fight for the 'chess honour' of their country would be held in Istanbul from August 27 to September 101, 2011.

You can access the official website at: The organising committee has started the process for obtaining visas and the website is being updated with all the latest information about the big chess event.

The Chess Olympiad is the principal team contest organised by FIDE. The Olympiad is held regularly at two year intervals in the autumn of the even numbered years (2006, 2008, etc.).
