Will continue to play even after winning FIDE elections: Anand

The 52-year-old, a five-time world champion, insists that he has already told top FIDE officials that he will not stop playing chess.

The All India Chess Federation (AICF) has unanimously decided to support Anand’s candidature for the post of Vice President of FIDE and if all goes in his favour, it will be the first time that an Indian will hold the top post in FIDE .

“I’m at the stage where I’m playing a lot less chess than I used to. I also have an academy, to which I’ll continue to dedicate a lot of time. Despite my victory in the election, I’ll continue to play, I’m not retiring Yes, the intensity of the tournament will definitely be less as I have a lot to do together.”

Asked if he wins the election, how he sees himself in the role of FIDE officials, Anand said, “It will be like a new challenge. Something good to experience, I want to learn as much as I can.” Will try. I don’t think I bring any obvious things to administration. I hope to be there as a public face of chess to communicate my thoughts and my vision, but it surprises me If I let myself administer things over a few years.. and frankly, as your question indicates, there would be a steep learning curve for me, as I’m not used to it.”

“I wanted to give back a lot to my game which has helped it grow. I have drawn attention to it and people enjoy that India plays chess. I think that is partly true,” he said. Argued to join the administration.
