WORLD CHESS LEAGUE “LIVE”

This event started off as “2020 Chess League” by Peter Hornsby but has quickly grown into something much bigger than expected! It has been a phenomenal success, so much so due to advertising it`s title is confusing now we are in to 2022! So outgoing founder and tournament director Peter Hornsby decided it was time for rebranding which would allow it to grow and continue to be the global success it has become!

This event is shown on “Live on Twitch” (courtesy of ChessHeros and others), and live on “Chess TV” through Chess.com. The success of this event is down to the imagination, drive and tremendous stamina of Peter Hornsby! We wish him well in the future in what ever he does. The other reason for it`s success is the amount of teams from all over the world that have taken part and embraced the event and format!

We have not covered this event on our website other than a few reports, but are now putting that right with it`s own Castlehill page.

The teams entered are a joint venture between Castlehill Chess Club Dundee and Dundee Chess Club. It has proven very popular amongst players from both chess clubs. The teams go under the banner of “Dundee City“.
