ACF Olympiad Appeal

The biennial Chess Olympiad is one of the world's biggest sporting events,
and the most important teams event on the world chess calendar.

The 42nd Olympiad is being held in the Azerbaijani capital of Baku, using the spectacular Crystal Hall as the playing venue. A budget of €13.3 million
will ensure a memorable event.

Australia will be fielding an open and a women's team,
each five of our best available players plus a team captain.

Unlike most competing nations, the Australian teams receive no government support and must pay their own way, a burden compounded by the distance involved from Australia to Azerbaijan and the corresponding high air fares (the cheapest as at the end of April were via Seoul and Istanbul, taking 48 hours). They can't do it alone, but depend on the support of the Australian chess community.

We ask you all to give what you can to the ACF Olympiad Appeal.
No donation is too large or too small -
all will get the teams that much closer to Baku
and will be acknowledged on this site.
