The petition, begun by Klaudia Tombolis, states —
Chess should be recognised as a Sport by Sport England. This can be done if the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, the Rt. Hon. Matt Hancock MP, helps the English Chess Federation to get chess recognised by Sport England. So please sign the petition — the more signatures, the better.
