Why we have to standardize a teams’ dress code

Chess organizations should soon discuss a standardization of Teams’ Dress Code in major
Chess Team events for the following reasons:

· A more common and suitable appearance in the sports’ market

· A more attractive picture for the MEDIA world wide

· Better information for the spectators and the arbiters in the playing halls

· Co-operation with major sports firms who may design special collection for the hundreds
millions of chess players.

· Better promotion of Sponsors and Chess Organizations

· In the near future Clubs or National teams could add in the contracts with top chess
players the commercial exploitation of their t-shirts.
