The 44th Chess Olympiad will be held in Chennai from July 28 to August 10, 2022. The prestigious competition, which has been organised since 1927, is being hosted in India for the first time and in Asia after 30 years. With 189 countries participating, this will be the largest participation in any Chess Olympiad.

The Prime Minister launched the historic torch relay on 19th June for the 44th Chess Olympiad today at Indira Gandhi Stadium, New Delhi. This year, India's contingent in the Chess Olympiad is the biggest so far.

The event is held over 11 rounds in both open and women’s categories with likely participation of over 2,000 players.

Several important decisions were taken, including the one to award the Olympiad to Chennai, during the FIDE Council held virtually recently.
