Open letter of Silvio Danailov: Bulgarian Chess Federation withdraws its bid to organize the Candidates match next year

Dear All,

Having in mind the highly suspicious, scandalous and shameful way in which World Youth Championship 2015 was awarded to Greece, Bulgarian Chess Federation has decided to withdraw its bid to organize the Candidates next year.

The main reason is that we are not willing to pay 300.000 Euro fee to the Organization who treats national federations in such a disrespectful way.


My best wishes to Khanty-Mansiysk, we have no doubt they will organize an excellent event.


Sofia, 11.10.2013

Best Regards,


Silvio Danailov-

President of

Bulgarian Chess Federation
