The club has been growing at a good rate in recent months, we wanted to create something in between long tournaments for new and old players to keep their skills fresh online.
We have launched two new leagues of 12 players based on the English Football League system, with a slight dramatic twist; 6 get promoted and 6 get relegated.
x12 Players are now signed up and playing in the Premier League (First prize is a branded mug and a cheap Magnum of Fizz).
x12 Players are about to start in the Championship.
We may add a third league (Or League 1 to be confusing) if there is demand for it. Let me know if you have missed out and are interested.
The top 6 players in the Championship will be invited to the next Premier League.
The bottom 6 will be relegated to the Championship. Season 2 will then begin in a few months time.
The leagues are a lot of games but designed to be less time consuming and allow up to 3 days per move, plus the option to take vacation breaks.
We estimate the league will take around 1 month or so to play out.
11 live games at once
22 games in total - Play everyone as Black/White
3 days per move, vacation mode allowed (based on what you build up like holiday pay in the app, but please don’t take over 2 weeks and hold up the result).
Top half of Premier League are safe, one winner.
Bottom 6 relegated.
Top half/ 6 of Championship invited to next Premier League
Bottom 6 of Championship either play again or relegated if third league starts
There will be a break/ off season of a month or so between seasons to allow time to do…. work or walk dogs, etc.
It’s a great way to test your chessy skills but also play club members you may not meet in tournaments often.
Traditional knock out tournaments will continue (FA Cup if you like…) The next one is not planned until Autumn 2022.
