Our Focus Project Objectives

The 64CC Project would be operated with the following 3 cardinal objectives:

Community Building

We hope to build an organized community of chess players, chess lovers and chess enthusiasts through periodic tournaments and organized meet ups where new chess talents are discovered and raw talents are groomed.

Brands' Growth

We would create an avenue for the marketing and growth of the personal and corporate brands of players, partners, sponsors and other stakeholders through effective networking and targeted publicity across diverse channels.

Global Positioning

Nigeria currently has 46 FIDE titled players, 7 International Masters and no Grandmaster. We believe it is time to change this narrative and our dream is to get Nigeria into the top 50 countries in the FIDE Global Rankings by 2025.
