Georgia bids for the Chess Olympiad 2018 and World Cup 2017

Georgia FlagThe Georgian Chess Federation sent an official bid for the Chess Olympiad 2018 and the World Cup 2017 to FIDE today, with all the necessary guarantees.

Thanks to the personal efforts of the Deputy Minister of Sports and candidate for the post of ECU President, GM Zurab Azmaiparashvili, more than 20 millions USD are allocated to both events!

About 2 millions USD will be spent on parallel development and promotion programs in Europe and the rest of the World.

This is a clear message for the challenges and opportunities of the new upcoming ECU administration.

Danailov spends ECU funds on his Campaign!

Silvio Danailov and his partners stay quiet about the serious questions raised by our campaign and a number of journalists and chess people. It seems that they are lacking any funds for this campaign and they are instead using the ECU budget on it.

Meanwhile Danailov also announced that he wants to terminate the meetings of the ECU Board 7 months before the elections(!), which is a serious violation of the statutes!

We will come back to all these matters with more details, but for the moment we ensure you that after the elections we will prove that funds from the ECU budget were spent on Danailov’s campaign and all this money will be returned after the 11th August.

Every single euro will be back in the ECU accounts.

With kind regards on the behalf of the “ECU Back to Europe” Team
