A look at what the NCF has in store for you this year.

Compliments of the New Year Chess Friends.

As most of you know by now, this year brings along a lot of excitement to the chess fraternity, as a number of chess events are planned to ignite and uplift chess in Namibia. Worth noting in this case is the Zone 4.3. Chess Championships scheduled to take place in Namibia in May, and not sidelining the highly anticipated Namibian National Chess Championship slated for mid-April. Speculations have been made that the nationals for this year will expect a large crowed of chess-hungry enthusiasts from all over the country. This is largely based on the desire players around the country have in qualifying for the 2014 Chess Olympiads taking place in Tromso, Norway in August later this year. 

The President of the Namibian Chess Federation, Otto Nakapunda, has high hopes for the growth of chess in Namibia this year and implores chess players and the general public alike to assist in making each and every chess event planned for this year a success.

Apart from the other chess events planned such as various training seminars and friendly tournaments planned with countries such as Botswana and South Africa, the NCF has a Chess league intended to help keep the players in shape and ready to state their claim come August at the Chess Olympiads.
