The Principality of Andorra and its capital, Andorra la Vella, have officially bid for the European Team Chess Championship 2013. Such event constitutes a challenge for any organizer: the F.E.V.A. (Chess Federation of Andorra) intends Andorra to be the first small state to meet this challenge.
Thus, during the days of the competition, Andorra would become the centre of the chess world. Holding such a mediatic event may open the doors of the Principality, through the internet and the mass media, to a significant audience who would then be able to get to know the facilities and means of our small country.
