Puma Partners Up with World Chess Champion Magnus Carlsen and The Champions Chess Tour

Magnus Carlsen

Sports company PUMA has signed a long-term agreement with Norwegian Chess Grandmaster Magnus Carlsen and with the Meltwater Champions Chess Tour. Through the partnership with Magnus and the Tour, PUMA will connect the world of chess with the world of sport performance by creating engaging content and activations for chess fans around the world.

Carlsen, a five-time World Chess Champion, is an avid sports fan and a natural fit for PUMA. At just 13 years of age, he became the youngest Grandmaster at the time and won his first World Chess Championship in 2013. In 2014, he became the highest-rated player in history.

“We often think of sports as being physical, but you also need mental strength,” said PUMA CEO Bjørn Gulden. “Few people embody that spirit like Magnus, who is widely regarded as the best chess player of all time. We are proud that he has become a part of the PUMA Family.”

As part of the agreement, the company will also support the Meltwater Champions Chess Tour, which is managed by the Play Magnus Group, a company founded by Carlsen. The Tour is the most popular circuit in the chess calendar and reaches millions of fans worldwide through its innovate presentation of chess as a spectator sport.

“Being part of a great company such as PUMA and joining so many people that I personally admire, is special to me. As a chess player, I am a huge fan of sports and that makes this partnership even better,” Magnus Carlsen said.

Together with Magnus Carlsen and the Tour, PUMA will help to expand the influence of the game of chess and bring the sport forward to millions of fans around the world.
