14.10.2022 08:00:01 CEST | Play Magnus AS | Non-regulatory press releases

(Oslo, 14 October 2022) - Play Magnus Group is pleased to announce an exciting
new relationship with Meetup, the social media platform dedicated to connecting
people over shared interests. The goal is to bring chess fans together around
the world for regular in-person and online events organised by using the Meetup
app.

Since August, 300 "Magnus Chess Groups" have been created in 66 countries using
the popular platform. They include groups in major cities including New York,
Miami, Oslo, London, Barcelona and Berlin. Magnus Chess Groups welcome everyone
regardless of their level of chess knowledge, age or gender with the aim of
growing chess as a social activity and building positive, healthy-minded
communities. Events will range from just playing chess to local, in-person
'viewing parties' for Play Magnus Group's flagship Meltwater Champions Chess
Tour, fun tournaments, workshops and more.

Meetup is the leading global social media platform for hosting and organising
in-person and virtual activities, gatherings, and events for people and
communities of similar interests, hobbies, and professions, with more than 60
million members. Chess is among the most popular gaming and e-sports topics on
Meetup. 

Sebastian Kuhnert, Chief Business Development Officer at Play Magnus Group,
said: "It has always been our goal to serve not only professional chess players
but to introduce and entertain an ever larger group of casual players, chess
fans, and general sport enthusiasts. Together with Meetup we will enable an even
larger network of people to connect locally around the world."

Greg Giusti, General Manager of Meetup Pro which enables brands and
organisations to build community and loyalty around the world, said: "Meetup is
excited to provide our enterprise solution to Play Magnus Group. They are
leaders in the game of chess, and we are excited to invite our chess enthusiasts
to create a community with the biggest brand in chess."
