95 years ago the International Chess Federation (FIDE, for its acronym in French) was created in Paris. The "International Chess Day" is celebrated every July 20. This proposal came from UNESCO in 1966, and made the so-called "science game" the only sport that has a global day of celebration.
From My Sports Column we congratulate FIDE, an organization that now, with the new directive, headed by Arkady Dvorkovich, has drawn up very interesting strategies that seek to globalize this sport, half art, half science.
