The 2021 edition
The Tata Steel Chess Tournament is considered as one of the most prestigious international chess competitions on the international calendar. During its 83 years of history, the so called “Wimbledon of Chess” has been fortunate to welcome an impressive list of renown international chess grand masters from around the world.
Also during the pandemic, we are happy to confirm that this uninterrupted tradition can continue to take place in the coastal village of Wijk aan Zee. In order to be able to do so, the organisation have collaborated closely with the relevant governmental health and safety bodies and the community key stakeholders to ensure that all measures have been put in place to optimally guarantee the safety of the chess grand masters and all other stakeholders.
