Online Tournaments for Students

Since the extended school closure in January 2021, we at Ficheall have been organising free, weekly online chess tournaments open to any pupil in an Irish primary school.  The tournaments have been a great success with pupils all over the country taking part.

The tournaments are open to students of all ability levels – once they have played a few games on , they will receive a chess rating based on their ability.  They will then be paired with other students of a similar ability to play in the tournaments, so everyone should be playing children at their own level.

From 3rd March 2021, these tournaments will take place each Wednesday at 7pm.  Please fill in the form below to receive the weekly invitation for pupils in your school.  If you have any further questions about the tournaments, please feel free to contact Brian at
