SDAT to give virtual presentation to FIDE on June 5

Sports Development Authority of Tamil Nadu (SDAT) is all set to give a virtual presentation to FIDE (world chess body) on June 5 on why it is best placed to host the World championship chess match between local boy D. Gukesh and Ding Liren scheduled in November this year. 

While All India Chess Federation (AICF) has bid for Delhi SDAT is hoping that FIDE will grant the match to Chennai as the city has all the facilities to host the premium tournament.

“Our financial bid has already been accepted by FIDE. And there is no clause, which says that a city or a State Government cannot bid for the World Championship [independent of AICF]. FIDE has invited us to give a presentation that will have the FIDE president and CEO. Given that we have hosted several global tournaments, including the International Surfing Open, Asian Champions Trophy hockey tournament, Chess Olympiad and Squash World Cup in a foo-proof manner, we are hopeful of a positive outcome,” J. Meghanath Reddy, Member Secretary of SDAT, told Sportstar here on Monday.
