The Danish Crown Prince becomes Patron of the XXVI FIDE Congress

The organisers of the XXVI FIDE Congress are happy to announce that the patronage of the XXVI FIDE Congress has been accepted by His Royal Highness Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark.

The FIDE Congresses hold a strong tradition of prominent patrons. In 1978, when Copenhagen hosted a FIDE Congress for the first time, it was her Majesty Queen Margrethe II of Denmark, who honored the Congress by  accepting to become its patron.

The organisers of the XXVI FIDE Congress are honoured and proud that the Crown Prince has chosen to support the upcoming FIDE Congress and the efforts through this to strengthen the knowledge of the law of the European Union.
