Calendar


In this time of COVID-19 …
If you find an event that appears to be taking place in person rather than online – PLEASE CHECK WITH THE ORGANISERS! It may be that they have simply neglected to let us know that their event is cancelled, or it may be taking place under strict pandemic rules and conditions which you’ll need to know about before attending to play, but they may have not told us about! Please check first.


The calendar is now sortable by category and by tag, both at the top of the calendar. You can use the button at the foot of the calendar to add this calendar to your own (Google, Apple, Timely etc). The print button at the top will print the page you’re on. Clicking on the main calendar bar (top left) allows you to choose a date to jump to. PLEASE NOTE – where an event is marked as ‘ALL DAY’ it may be best to check with the organisers in case they have not submitted a start and/or end time to us …

To submit your event to the ECF calendar – click here. This will also enable you to submit your event to the International Rating Office for registration with FIDE if it is FIDE-rated or has a FIDE-rated section(s)* | For a PDF of the ECF Event Calendar (updated every 4-6 weeks) – click here (PDF updated September 7th 2020) | To submit an online event for ECF Online rating – click here
* English events or events covered by the ECF only, obviously …

Official FIDE events … http://www.fide.com/calendar … and the rest – worldwide chess events from the FIDE website – http://www.fide.com/calendar/tournaments.html

To submit your FIDE-rated event to the FIDE Events Calendar, click this link – https://www.fide.com/calendar/tournaments.html?view=calendar&task=uregister

A new badge system has been introduced whenever possible from 26/3/18 onwards. An amber wheelchair (below) means that the venue has at least some disability-friendly aspects, whereas a green wheelchair (also below) means it’s particularly so. In all cases, but especially where no badge is evident, PLEASE contact the organisers for more details …
