Chess is a universal game (191 countries in the International Chess Federation) that goes back over a thousand years. It came to Europe through the Arabs, who in the 8th century brought it to the Iberian Peninsula. The chess that is played throughout the world today was created in Spain at the end of the 15th century, when the queen became the most powerful piece. From there it spread to western Europe and the Americas. Its common language allows people to communicate regardless of race, language, religion, age or gender.

The Spain Pavilion in Expo Dubai 2020, in line with the theme of this universal exposition of "Connecting Minds, Creating the Future" invites all member countries to participate in an event that aims to "increase intelligence for life" and expand awareness of the potential of chess as a key educational tool, as supported by sound scientific studies.
