Are you passionate about playing chess? Then you’re in the right place: the chess season is kicking off this October. Join the ongoing hype and fellow chess enthusiasts in our Credit Suisse chess club to compete against other companies starting in autumn.

On August 8, thirteen members of the «Credit Suisse Chess Club» opened the 2018/19 chess season with a friendly game against Google. This opening game resulted in a successful win for Credit Suisse 8.5 vs Google 4.5. Google is the youngest company joining the chess intercompany tournament “Firmen-Mannschafts-Meisterschaft” – FMM.

The FMM season will start on October 3 with Credit Suisse playing against IBM and Gretag.
