This is a knockout event, with matches played exclusively online.
It is for teams of four, from a squad of six all of whom are members of their own federation and a majority of one of the ‘home unions’.
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.
There will be no prize money, but the winning team in the Cup competition will receive free entry to the competition in the following year.
Cup - Michael Prior, Michael Hampton, Norman Selway, Kay Preddy
Plate - John Atthey, Claire Robinson, Tony Hill and Alan Wearmouth
