The 77th Tata Steel Chess Tournament: 9 - 25 January 2015 in Wijk aan Zee.

The next Tata Steel Chess Tournament will take place from 9 - 25 January in Wijk aan Zee. Tata Steel is due to make an announcement soon about which world class players will attend the tournament.

The Tata Steel Chess Tournament is one of the most important events in the chess calendar. The tournament brings together the world's leading chess players and the most passionate amateurs with its grandmaster groups and amateur events.

The world-famous tournament has two main player groups, each with 14 players. They are known as the Tata Steel Masters and the Tata Steel Challengers. Both groups attract world class players and online spectators from across the globe.

Tata Steel is proud of the global standing this tournament has acquired during its long history, and the positive impact it continues to have in the region.

The 76th edition of the Tata Steel Chess Tournament took place from 10 - 26 January 2014. The main tournament location was Dorpshuis de Moriaan in Wijk aan Zee, the Netherlands. But for the first time in history the grandmasters played two rounds on other locations, one in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam and one at the High Tech Campus Eindhoven.

The winner of the 76th Tata Steel Chess Tournament was Levon Aronian of Armenia.

As well as the amateur events, 350 children from schools in the IJmond, Amsterdam, and Eindhoven region took part in a series of simultaneous exhibitions, where a single player competes against multiple opponents at the same time.

Further information about the 77th Tata Steel Chess Tournament will be available soon.
