Team Donations
Each year we field both an Open team and a Women’s team in either the Chess Olympiad or the European Team Championship. The teams are funded from a mixture of ECF income, sponsorship, and donations. The ECF really appreciates any help, large or small, with donations which will help to field our strongest England teams – just click the button (below).
