Join The Tour

We are already working on adding additional tournaments to the 2018 tour roster and we would be happy to hold discussions with potential event organisers or sponsors who are interested in bringing a Grand Chess Tour tournament to their own country in 2018. In particular, we are now actively looking for partners in Africa, South America and Asia in order to ensure that the tour is truly global in the future.

The qualifying criteria that GCT tour events must meet are strenuous but will be provided upon request to interested parties. Should you be interested in organising or sponsoring a tour event in 2018, kindly contact our Technical Director, Mr Graham Jurgensen ( in order to initiate discussions in this regard.
