Teams that are registered already will have received a reminder email in the past few days - we kindly ask to provide us with any missing/changed details as soon as possible. This will alow us to make amendments in a timely manner befoore we are no longer able to do this.


Registrations: Initial Conditions extended until 15th September


We are delighted to have had such a great response and interest in the European Senior Team Chess Championship 2022.

Up to the 15th July we have received registrations from over 50 teams out of 12 countries!

Equally, there are quite a few teams who have expressed their interest but are hesitant to confirm their bookings yet, due to the continuously changing pandemic situation.

Of course we would like to allow these teams and other teams, who might have been thinking about participating, to still register.

Therefore we are extending the initial registration conditions for all teams.

The registration fee will remain the same until 15th September 2022: 60€ per participant
