The Nordic Chess Championship

The board of the Nordic Chess Federation has decided to give the right to organize the 2016 Nordic Chess Championships (in all three groups: the open, women and seniors) to the Finnish Chess Federation. The tournaments will be held in late October 2016 in Vuorihotelli, at Sastamala (50 km from Tampere/Tammerfors). Further details on the events will be presented by the organizer in due time.
There were also fine bids from Denmark (Nørresundby Skaklub and Aalborg Skakforening) and the Icelandic Chess Federation. The board decided in favour of the Finnish bid primarily because it covered all three events (the open, the womens and the seniors), thereby making it a chess festival.

The Board of the Nordic Chess Federation has decided to move the Nordic Chess Championships (scheduled to take place in 2015) to 2016. Further information and invitation to bids from organizers will be published in the spring 2015.


The Nordic Senior Team competition, scheduled to take place during the Tromsö OL, has been cancelled.


The Nordic Women Championship 2013 has been cancelled.

The Nordic Women Championship, which was supposed to be held in Reykjavik 17th-23rd September has been cancelled. The reason is lack of interest, but 20 days before the commencement of the tournament there were less than 10 players registrated and only two from other countries than Iceland.
The Icelandic Chess Federation apologizes for the inconvenience for those players already registered to take part.
The ICF has suggested that women chess in Nordic countries should specially be discussed at the Nordic Chess Federation board meeting in Köge Kyst in October.
Best regards, Gunnar Bjornsson, President of ICF
