The Swedish Chess Academy have observed and shown appreciation for the sponsorship work and investment in the premium league that Stefan Printz has done for Malmö AS and Swedish chess. On Friday June 2, Stefan was officially elected as a member of the academy.
– I am extremely happy that my work for Malmö AS and elite chess players has been appreciated by Swedish Chess and flattered over the fact that I have been elected as a full-worthy member after such a short time. I have many good ideas about chess and I am convinced that my engagement will have a positive influence on Swedish chess on top level, Stefan said during his presentation before the other members.
Two other new members were elected, Joel Eklund, Limhamn Chess Club and Stefan Andersson, Åstorp Chess Association.
