J-E-T-S, Chess, Chess, Chess!

The Marshall Chess Club is proud to announce its presence at the New Meadowlands Stadium for all home games of the New York Jets football team during the 2010-2011 season.

The club will host a chess area, located at the Verizon Gate, as part of the New York Jets pre-game "Fan Fest." Here, from the time the gates open until kickoff, chess-loving football fans have the chance to socialize, play blitz, or challenge a grandmaster to a game of chess.

At the season opener against the Baltimore Ravens, 18-year-old grandmaster and Jets fan Robert Hess took on all challengers. Grandmaster Maurice Ashley will be available for chess games at this Sunday's home game against the New England Patriots.

Marshall Chess Club vice-president Larry Price, who was instrumental in creating this exciting partnership, will represent the club and answer questions about the Marshall Chess Club.
