Welcome message from Jean-Claude Moingt, President of the French Chess Federation

After having been organized in Eastern Europe for last 10 years, the 2011 European Chess Championships will be held in France (first time ever), in Aix-les-Bains, from March 21st to April 3rd. This is the result of many years of tight collaboration between the French Chess Federation and the European Chess Union. This prestigious tournament will be the most important event of the year for us and can be considered as a huge spotlight on our sport.

54 countries, more than 400 players, including the strongest Grandmasters of the world, will offer to chess fans a show never seen before in France! That is why the French Chess Federation sets a very ambitious goal: we would like everybody to keep unforgettable impressions of this event! We want it to be faultless in terms of welcoming and be a good example in terms of conviviality.

First of all, we made our choice, together with the Rhône-Alpes Region and the Savoie Departement, in favor of the worldwide known place, famous for its tradition of welcoming foreign visitors and its exceptional environment.

The other natural reason is that Aix-les-Bains has already been involved for a long while in organisation of huge chess events and it has also the dynamic image of an “all sports” city.

And the last but not the least, is that the French Ministry of Sports and private partners have joined us to give an additional value to the event across France, to create parallel competitions, and to make this European Championship an amazing place for players and visitors!
