Tromso Chess Olympiad 2014 Venue Preview!

Hello Chess Blog friends,

Here is a nice preview of the venue for the upcoming Chess Olympiad 2014 in Norway. According to the official website, "This August the 2014 Chess Olympiad in Tromsø will bring together 1500 players from all around the world. Hosting such a huge event is a challenge, but the organisers have found the perfect venue – the 7,000 square foot Mackhallen in central Tromsø. We bring you 30 images of how the venue will look for the Olympiad."

The spectacular venue used to belong to Mack, the world’s most northerly brewery, which was established in 1877. After the brewery moved to more modern facilities the old premises became available in an ideal location, close to all the official Olympiad hotels in the city centre.

The gallery of 30 images gives an impression of how the venue will look when the Olympiad begins in a little over 100 days’ time!
