World Chess Championship, Tripoli, Libya

The MCA Board thanked Eng Mohammad Al Gathafi, the Libyan Olympic Committee, the Libyan Chess
Federation and all the sponsors for the organization of the WCC in Tripoli, Libya. The tournament was
of the highest standards and the coverage had been excellent all over the world. The network server and
 hosting provided by the organizers was excellent and this had permitted the FIDE Press office to
upload much more information than was normally usual. Everybody had performed at the highest
levels possible and the tournament was a public relations platform for the organization of future events.
There had been an average of 37,000 unique hits per day over the last few days and over 17 million
requests per day. There was no doubt that Libya had carried out the organization with the highest
degree of hospitality and professionalism.
