Dear Susan,

We are pleased to let you know that legendary World Chess Champion Garry Kasparov will act as Ambassador of this Challenge and has selected the World Team, who will play Magnus Carlsen on September 10th.

May we present: the World Team

Three Chess Grandmasters, Maxime Vachier-Lagrave from France, Hikaru Nakamura from the United States and Judit Polgár from Hungary, are selected by Garry Kasparov to represent the World Team. As such they will help you try to beat Magnus.

When asked about his thoughts on the RAW World Chess Challenge, Garry Kasparov says: “I am acting as the ambassador of this Challenge, because I am attracted by the unique character of the RAW World Chess Challenge. There isn’t any sport I know of that gives the entire world the opportunity to play the world’s best simultaneously. Magnus is one of the greatest talents ever. This game will be a true challenge for him. Let’s see who wins: he or the World”.

We will update you shortly with more details on the RAW World Chess Challenge.

Check out the video of the World team on our website.

Kind regards,
G-Star RAW
