FIDE 100 Years

Guinness World Records attempt

FIDE is inviting federations, chess organizers, clubs, and players to help set a Guinness World Record with at least one million games played in 24 hours! The attempt will be made on July 20, the date FIDE officially turns 100.

To ensure the quality of each game counted, the FIDE Arbiters’ Commission will draw up regulations to ensure that all the games, both online and offline, are accurately registered, controlled and reported to the Guinness World Records Office, in a timely manner.

Further details will be announced on May 1, but for now, get ready to join the biggest chess movement on the planet – FIDE’s centennial record challenge!
