Budapest hosting 2024 Chess Olympiad
The International Chess Federation (FIDE), Hungary's National Sports Agency, and the Hungarian Chess Federation yesterday signed a contract on the organization of the 2024 Chess Olympiad, a chess tournament for national teams from around the world, in Budapest, according to origo.hu.
After the contract was signed, FIDE chairman Arkady Dvorkovich said Budapest's application to host the contest drew its strength from Hungary's chess tradition as well as the government's contribution and support, singling out the efforts of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán.
He said the 2024 Chess Olympiad would be an "extraordinary event" that would improve the image of chess and broaden its appeal.
