The Daily Telegraph and ICC!

We at ICC are happy and proud to announce the start of a collaboration with the UK newspaper The Daily Telegraph.

The Daily Telegraph, known online and elsewhere as The Telegraph, is a national British daily broadsheet newspaper published in London by Telegraph Media Group and distributed in the United Kingdom and internationally. It was founded by Arthur B. Sleigh in 1855 as The Daily Telegraph & Courier. Considered a newspaper of record, The Telegraph has been described as being "one of the world's great titles". The paper's motto, "Was, is, and will be", was included in its emblem, which was used for over a century starting in 1858.

And at the Telegraph, they care about chess!
International Master, author, journalist, and organizer Malcolm Pein has a daily(!) column in the newspaper about... yes, you guessed right: chess.

Malcolm is one of the most well-regarded and known chess personalities. He has been an influential figure in British chess for over thirty years in the roles of player, coach, journalist, publisher, organizer, fundraiser, and entrepreneur.
Pein started writing reports for The Daily Telegraph in 1987 before becoming their full-time correspondent in 1988. Pein has written a daily chess column every day for 33 years, with over 11,0000 columns in total.

And starting September 1, 2023, ICC will publish Pein's column every day!

We're excited to have such a well-known and talented chess pen present on our website on a regular basis.
