ECF Online County Championships

The ECF Online County Championships web page is now live, providing full details and with various links, including links to the event Club on Chess.com and the results service on the ECF LMS.  If you would like to register for a County squad, please contact your County’s organiser through the link provided on the  page. You will need to be an ECF Member or ECF Supporter before registration, and have one of the associations with that County listed on the page. There are plenty of matches to go before player lists close ahead of the Championships stages.
With normal service resumed by Chess.com, the first results in the qualifying Divisional groups are now in, and among them some powerful performances and a nip-and-tuck affair between Middlesex and Yorkshire, renewing traditional rivalries in Division 1. The group stage has been extended to 1st August, when the aborted round 1 matches will be replayed.
