FIDE World Rapid Team Championship 2023 FINAL RECAP

The inaugural FIDE World Rapid Team Championship took place in Düsseldorf, Germany, from August 26-28, 2023.

It was an event with an incredible atmosphere, friendly yet highly competitive. It was a blast for numerous spectators who witnessed top players in action and collected coveted autographs and photos. It was a valued experience for amateur players and kids who played alongside the strongest grandmasters in the world in pursuit of a common goal. And it was an incredible triumph for team ‘WR Chess’, which claimed the trophy with one round to spare2.

We are already looking forward to the second edition next year!
