For example, this spring, Astana hosted the World Chess Championship, which was won by Ding Lizheng. Many also hear about the recent high-profile victories of the talented Kazakh chess players Bibisara Assaubayeva, Zhansai Abdumalik, Dinara Saduakasova and others. Today, the Kazakhstan women’s chess team is considered one of the best teams in the world, with the children’s and youth team consistently winning medals at various championships.

Soon they will be able to demonstrate their abilities – in August, the first world chess championship among schoolchildren began in the Caspian city of Aktau. As part of the World Championship for School Teams, more than 400 schoolchildren from 53 countries will come to Kazakhstan and compete for the title of world champion. Darmen Sadvakasov, First Vice President of the Kazakhstan Chess Federation, hopes that this new format will become a great chess party for children and gain popularity in the future. After all, not athletes or students of chess clubs and sections will compete, but ordinary schoolchildren, chess lovers.

Holding a large-scale event was made possible by the Kazakhstan Chess Federation and the FIDE team with the support of the large financial holding company Freedom Holding Corp.

“Our main goal is to make chess more popular among schoolchildren, to involve young Kazakhs in this game and to ensure that this sport becomes the key to success in their lives,” said Timur Turlov, President and CEO of the Kazakhstan Chess Federation. of Freedom Holding Corp.

The celebration is trying not only to popularize chess in the republic, but also to provide opportunities for the younger generation. So Turlov plans to increase the number of chess sections in Kazakhstan from 7 to 14 thousand.

Chess is once again attracting the interest of the world community, as it is not only an exciting intellectual sport, but also a unifying force for people and countries on all continents. Kazakhstan is already attracting the best chess players in the world by hosting world tournaments such as the World Championship, the Asian Continental Championship and the World School Team Championship.

All this was possible thanks to the coordinated work of the government and companies. General partner of the Kazakhstan Chess Federation Freedom Holding Corp. supports and finances international tournaments.

The President of the International Chess Federation (FIDE) Arkady Dvorkovich also appreciated the high level of development of chess culture in the country: “I am glad that chess is becoming an important part of life in Kazakhstan. . Kazakhstan has become one of the chess capitals in recent months. Despite the impressive results already achieved, we have many new goals and victories ahead of us.”

Entrepreneurship, together with state support, is becoming a key driver for the formation of a sports culture in Kazakhstan, and the popularization of chess among schoolchildren will create the foundation for the development of chess for many, many years and really will unlock the chess potential of the country.

“I am happy to have the opportunity to contribute to the development of chess, especially here in Kazakhstan, where most of our business is located and where we see the connection between our holding company’s activities and the country’s ambitious vision of the future. We are trying to make sure that, on the one hand, chess becomes a mass sport, and on the other hand, that really talented guys get all the support they need for further development,” says Timur Turlov.
