Feb 12, 2014
European Team Champions in 2011 and European Team Vice-Champions in 2013, Germany and France, will play a friendly match some time during 2014 to mark the 51st anniversary of the Élysée Treaty.
Diego Salazar, President of the French Chess Federation, and Horst Metzing, CEO of the German Chess Federation (in office since 1976), recently met in Paris to discuss various projects for cooperation.
The two federations will work with Franco-German Office for Youth (OFAJ), the first joint office created after Élysée Treaty, to provide chess training for talented juniors from two countries.
