The FIDE Commission for Women's Chess (WOM) has held its meeting on 29th September in Hotel Sheraton, Batumi.

Thanks to the generous support of Lobortas Classical Jewelry House, the FIDE Commission for Women's Chess presented valuable cups for the performance for 2016 to GM Anna Muzychuk, Ukraine and for 2017 to GM Nana Dzagnidze, Georgia.

A formal letter of recognition was given to Mr. Lobortas for his continuous support to FIDE and WOM.

Dear Mr. Lobortas,

On behalf of FIDE the Commission for Women’s Chess (WOM), we would like to express our gratitude and appreciation to you for the ongoing support to chess, and especially to women’s chess.

It has been ten years since the cooperation started between FIDE and Lobortas Classical Jewelry House. It all started back in 2008 when you, and your company, kindly offered to do the restoration of the then damaged Nona Gaprindashvili Cup.

Since 2009, the Lobortas Classical Jewelry House sponsored countless elegant Cups to the winners of the Caissa Awards, as well as of the Grand Prix.

These valuable Cups are unique creations, made of precious silver and gemstone. Therefore, we believe that those are very important contribution to our beloved game, and its image in the world.

Again, many thanks for your support, and we are looking forward to many more years of cooperation.

Co-Chairperson of WOM
