Iran Chess Federation, as one of the actors for peace and development through sport, will organize “1st Peace & Sport Rapid Chess Tournament” on 15 April 2015 in Tehran.
This tournament will be played between all personnel of embassies and consulates placed in Iran. Participation is free of charge for the embassies and consulates. Therefore, it can be the reason for promotion of relationships between different countries.
The event's website is under construction.
Iran Chess Federation and Ministry of Foreign Affairs of I. R. Iran are organizers of this tournament. There are several sponsors for this event that they are finalized in some days.
Since There is New Year holidays in Iran from 21 March to 3 April and we have shortage of time for organizing the event on 6 April, the tournament committee decided to organize the event later. However, we set 6 April as deadline for registration and planned for WhiteCard campaign during the tournament in order to inform participants about International Day of Sport for Development and Peace. In addition, we wrote about this International Day in the tournament regulation and referred to the website www.april6.org.
