As a chess player and as a fan, many of you would be aware that “International Chess Day” falls on 20 July. And yes, in Remote Chess Academy, we’d like to celebrate this amazing chess festival with you! 🙂

celebrate So, how are we going to celebrate this great event?

We’re planning to conduct a one-week campaign from 13-20 July. This campaign is aimed at chess fans (as well as non-chess fans) all over the world and hopes to contribute to the development of the chess game. This one-week campaign will be more fun and educative.

We’ve created a separate celebration page for this purpose. You can find all details about this festival here: LINK

We’ll be conducting various events, providing you with some instructive articles and lessons, and last, but not least, we’ll be providing you with some exciting offers! 🙂

partySo let me explain them, one by one.


“I love chess” campaign


First, on Monday, 13 July, we’ll be conducting an event called the I love chess” campaign. To participate in this event, you need to send your chess photo – a photo of you playing a chess game or holding your favorite chess piece or any photo of you that is related to chess.


Note: a picture of ANY quality is accepted for this “I love chess” event!

Along with that photo, you can explain in a few words the reason why you love chess and play the game. Additionally, if you love RCA (I hope you do:)), you can mention that too along with the reason why.

The “I love chess” campaign will be conducted from 13-15 July (inclusive).

  1. It’s great to know you enjoy it. Thanks for your support!

    Guys, let’s have fun during this celebration week! There’s only 1 “International Chess Day” per year, let’s make it special.

    P.S. Many chess players complain that chess is not as popular as it should be. Now you can bring your contribution into changing it for the better! I look forward to receive your chess photos, questions for AMA etc.
