6 upcoming FIDE rated events for August/September

Northern Ireland will see 6 FIDE-rated events during mid-August to the end of September. Ranging from blitz to rapid and classic tournaments, there’s something for all. Early booking is advised as most of the venues have a set limit on capacity.

We remain committed to spreading chess across the province. For the season ahead, we are delighted to add Downpatrick as a new town on the chess map and we continue to build on the wonderful momentum in Newry and Groomsport.

Please note the Ulster Chess Union membership year runs from 1st September 2022 to 31st August 2023. Anyone wishing to play in the upcoming Ulster Championships should pay their membership fees for the new season at the tournament. Fees remain at £25, with a reduced rate of £15 for ICU members and a rate of £10 for Under 18s.
