Olympiad offer for Federations

FIDE will be purchasing new DGT e-boards for the Olympiad in Dresden. The Presidential Board decided that these would be offered on a pro rata basis to federations at the close of the Olympiad for a price of €299 per unit. This is a substantial discount to the normal price of over €500 and each unit includes:

DGT e-board, Walnut/Maple, serial port connection, Timeless piece set (2 extra queens)

DGT XL clocks (red or beige)

Connection material

All federations entering two teams will be able to purchase 4 units and federations entering one team can purchase 2 units. In the event that the offer is not fully subscribed, then federations can offer to buy additional units.

Please send your order to the FIDE Secretariat at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it by August 31st and indicate if you would be interested in purchasing additional units if they are available. You will be expected to take the equipment with you when you leave Dresden. You will need to buy a ToMa licence if you do not already have one, to operate the boards on the web but DGT will offer these at a 50% discount to the normal price. DGT are also arranging free seminars in Dresden for those that do not have experience with the e-boards.
