Online Knockout Teams

This is a knockout event, with matches played exclusively online.

It is open to teams consisting of four to six players, all of whom are members of the 'home union' federations.

Matches prior to the semi-finals will be played over 24 boards, the semi-finals and the final being 32 boards.

A Plate competition is available for teams which lose their first match, so everyone is guaranteed at least two matches.
