  • Tata Steel Chess Tournament

    The Tata Steel Chess Tournament is renowned as one of the most important chess events in the world. The tournament brings together the world’s leading chess players and the most passionate amateurs with its grandmaster groups and amateur events.

    82nd Edition of the Tata Steel Chess Tournament: January 10-26, 2020

    The main rounds of the tournament take place in the traditional coastal village Wijk aan Zee (Amsterdam region).

    Two groups with Grandmasters

    The Tata Steel Chess Tournament features two main Grandmaster groups, each with 14 players. They are known as the Tata Steel Masters and the Tata Steel Challengers. Both groups consist of world class players and attract thousands of offline and millions of online spectators from across the globe. 

    Tata Steel is proud of the global standing that Tata Steel Chess Tournament has acquired during its long history, and the positive impact it continues to have both inside and outside the world of chess.

    At Tata Steel we are a firm believer in the benefits of brain sports, especially for our ‘Future Generations’. Additionally, we witness time and again that people of different age, gender, culture and backgrounds build a bond and connect easily through the game of chess.  We therefore activate the tournament through various school programmes in our own community and in those we visit with the Chess on Tour events to connect school children and positively impact their mental and social development.
