PRO University Chess League

— from Dylan Mize, Vice President of the UCL Chess Society

PUCL is the UK’s first intercollegiate team rapid event. Fixtures are played between teams of 4 students from the same uni, in an all-play-all format, once a month during the academic year. All matches will be hosted at a venue on UCL’s Bloomsbury campus. All relevant tournament information can be found on our website below. 

In October we are set to kick off the inaugural season of PUCL, and we have a lot of exciting news. We’ve secured sponsorship for all the equipment necessary to support all of the players and separate sponsorship supporting a generous prize fund. This is a highly anticipated event as several universities in London and outside London have already signed up and lots of work has been put into making it a successful event, serving as an exciting way to grow the sport of chess in the UK and provide a platform for intercollegiate exchange.
