Dear FIDE Members,

I am delighted to welcome you to the CIS web site. Children who learn chess are, on average, more intelligent, healthier and better socially adjusted.

There are also big advantages for FIDE and our national federations if many more schoolchildren learn chess. Our ultimate objective is that every child should learn to play chess. We do not need to go far along that road before chess would be recognized as the number one sport in the world.

Chess in Schools is to be our main focus during this mandate and, as I promised in Khanty-Mansiysk, I have been visiting countries to promote Chess in Schools to heads of government and education ministries. I am excited about the special CIS projects. This web site will be a report card of our progress.

I congratulate the Commission on launching this web site and give it my full support, exhorting the Commission to strive for great achievements.


Kirsan Ilyumzhinov
FIDE President

This web site will fulfil all the normal functions, such as keeping you up to date with news of relevance to Chess in Schools (News, Reports, Schedule), providing a rich resource of research and teaching materials (Information and Resource Centre). There is also an innovative section for you to submit videos that you consider to be of interest and relevance to our mission of developing Chess in Schools. Perhaps most important of all, you will be able to follow the progress of our exciting “Special Projects,” the first of which will be launched in one country later this year.

Please do contact us with your comments, opinions and ideas, as well as your videos.
