International Chess Day

GiLoCatur just knew minutes ago that today, 20/7/2016 is the International Chess Day.

It was on this data ie 20th July more than nine decades ago that FIDE was founded. What is FIDE? 

FIDE is the acronym of The Fédération Internationale des Échecs  which means the World Chess Federation. 

What this World Chess Federation does?

It is an international organization that connects the various national chess federations around the world and acts as the governing body of international chess competition like Chess Olympiad.

GiLoCatur would like to wish Happy Chess Day or Selamat Hari Catur to all chess enthusiasts especially the Malaysian Chess community.
