Kasparov Chess Foundation-Africa has donated 600 chess sets worth around USD 10,000 to the Ghana Chess Association. The donation was handed by GM Nigel Short during the opening ceremony of the 5th President’s Cup at the Theodosia Okoh Hockey Stadium on 1st July 2015.
According to Nigel, it is a general issue often of shortage in equipment. So the items will help introduce people to the game.
Receiving the items on behalf of GCA, the GCA Vice President, Philip Ameku expressed gratitude and promised to develop and promote the sport across the country with plans to reach schools and communities.
