What We Do
We plan and execute the best chess events in the world. From superior organization and amenities to a full-blown spectator experience, we show professional chess as it's meant to be enjoyed. Watch your favorites battle it out over the coming months. Paris, Leuven, Saint Louis and London... Chess has arrived.
The 2017 Grand Chess Tour brings 23 of the world’s strongest chess professionals together through a cycle of five international tournaments, each representing the new gold standard for professional chess. Every pivotal move will be broadcast live alongside world-class grandmaster commentary, watching the world’s best players compete for lucrative tournament prize funds and race for the additional Tour prize.
The next level of chess begins this June in Paris and Leuven for rapid and blitz games, continues in August with the Sinquefield Cup and the Saint Louis Rapid and Blitz and finalizes with the London Chess Classic in December.
