“Thanks to Chessable, I was able to improve my game to the next level this year, and Increased a lot of rating points.”

GM Mikhail Kobalia

Chairman of the FIDE Trainers Commission

“In my time, we could not even dream of seeing such strong trainers online and learning from them. We want you to learn a lot from different people.”

GM Thomas Luther


“As a lecturer I can give the kids the floor, they can take the voice, they can talk, they can explain to other kids, they can show something on the board.”

What is the Chessable FIDE Academy?

The Chessable FIDE Academy is a joint training initiative by FIDE — the international chess federation — and Chessable — the world’s leading chess e-learning platform. Our mission is to help up-and-comers become the best players they can be. This 2022, over 400 promising youngsters from over 80 national federations will enjoy free access to Chessable courses — plus exclusive lessons from the world’s top coaches.

World-Class Chess Coaching

Last year’s classes with 5-time World Champion Vishy Anand and 2021 FIDE World Cup Winner Jan-Krzysztof Duda received applause from the attendees and organizers. This year’s classes will be just as memorable, thanks to our expanded coaching roster of 22 licensed chess trainers.
