Chess, not an easy sport for ... brading

Chess,one of the most popular mind sports in the world with millions of players, watching at home, in the club, on online devices and even in tournaments, which every moves represents art, developing human personality and thinking.

Chess is less likely to be interested by branding campaigns of enterprises, especially if compared to sports that are easy to attract fans because of the "crowd effect" like football. Because of that, in Vietnam, while football competitions have attracted many sponsoring brands, chess is almost left empty.

Speaking at the closing ceremony of the most prestigious national and leading chess tournament in Asia, which took place in Vietnam in early March 2016, Deputy Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Le Khanh Hai said, It is quite a pity that, as of March 2016, according to the ranking of the World Chess Federation, Vietnam ranked 40/170 countries and had golden generations such as Quang Liem, Truong Son, Thanh Trang. , Thao Nguyen, but still has not attracted enterprises to participate in chess, the sport of art, help developing human personality and thinking the most.

Luckily, 6 years ago, HDBank accompanied Vietnam Chess Federation and HDBank's goal of sponsoring an international chess tournament was not the main purpose of branding but creating a playground for chess lover around the world. Through this playground, people are more connected, more kind to each other. HDBank International Chess Tournament was born from that.
