PLAYING VENUE

The playing venue

Torino 2006
This is the OVAL!

The biggest playing venue ever seen for a Chess Olympiad: more than 21,000 sq. m. (the playing area is a rectangle of 210x107 metres, while a football pitch, goalpost to goalpost, measures at the most 110 x 75), with the ceiling height varying between 12 and 18 metres.
THE OVAL will be totally dedicated to chess where teams made up of the best players in the world representing 140 federations will do battle for the Olympic crown (450 games a day for 14 days).
But there is much more. There is ample room in the OVAL for analysis rooms where games will be commented live by the GMs present, the 14th World Chess Computer Championship, popular conferences, a marketplace for chess books and materials, and open tournaments for all to play in.
Plus giant screens to enable you to follow the most important games, and access to the playing hall so that you can watch the games from close at hand.
