Preparations for Visma Chess 2015 are in progress. The webpage will be updated with information for the 3rd instantiation of Visma Chess Tournament soon. Stay tuned!


International in Växjö Last year, when Visma Chess Tournament had its premiere, it had been exactly 30 years since an international tournament had been arranged in Småland. And it had never before been in Växjö. The tournament gathered 30 players from 8 countries in the beautiful Växjö Konserthus (Växjö Concert Hall). It is a real pleasure to once again invite to Visma Chess Tournament, this time 2014. The tournament gives Swedish players the possibility to gain norms for the toughest titles in chess – International Master and Grandmaster. We are glad to be able to present twice Swedish champion GM Tiger Hillarp Persson and reigning Nordic champion IM Axel Smith as well as many young and promising players. The three groups – one GM group and one IM group – gathers players from among Denmark Norway, Finland, Poland, Netherlands, Germany, Spain, and even Australia. We hope that the tournament will be a highlight for both chess lovers and curious who want to see a tournament for real. And for everybody who wants to follow the tournament live on the internet. We can promise you one thing – we will do our very best to ensure that players and spectators will experience five wonderful days in Växjö. Welcome to Visma Chess Tournament 2014!
