Welcome to Tata Steel Chess

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

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

The Tata Steel Chess Tournament is of real benefit to the IJmuiden community, bringing valuable business to our neighbouring seaside villages at what would otherwise be a quiet time of year. Our regional stakeholders see the tournament as the most important event of the year and we are proud of the significance and standing the event has acquired, and the benefits it brings.

The 77th edition of the Tata Steel Chess Tournament will take place from 9 - 25 January 2015.
