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.
