Did you know that Stavanger is one of the chess capitals of the world? Welcome to a chess evening to learn more about the chess community in the Stavanger region.

Annually, Stavanger is host to one of the world’s most prestigious chess tournaments, Norway Chess, that hosts the top 10 rated players in the world.

Every year, the chess elite meets in Stavanger to participate in this action-packed tournament, and for many players it is perhaps the most attractive tournament they participate in.

Through the Norway Chess tournament, Stavanger has become one of the world’s chess metropolises. This annual event has become an important arena for Stavanger and the rest of the region.

Norway Chess has played a major part in making chess available for all, especially by:

  • commercializing chess as a sport
  • introducing chess on national tv
  • contribute to the development of chess
  • utilizing the opportunity chess gives to connect people from all backgrounds, cultures, ages and languages
  • focusing on sponsors and high level of professionalism

During the Norway Chess tournament there is also an open tournament, and several other side-events open to all. Learn more about this and how to join a local chess club in the Stavanger area.

All ages are welcome!


For more information, please contact Inger Tone Ødegård


This event is free of charge, but you have to enroll. If you have a company/ University  e-mail address, please use your formal e-mail. Only one person per e-mail.
