US Chess League on Chess.com!

Hey friends!

So, obviously I'm very excited about the US Chess League coming to Chess.com this year. I believe this is one of the two most marketable U.S. chess events there is, and I'm hoping (and expecting) that we will see great growth in the League this coming year.

I want to make sure all of you are aware of how to follow the League here on Chess.com!

1) Join the USCL Group! This will give you access to important info, such as

2) Join USCL Fantasy Chess! To follow this link you need to first join that group. My own league still has room in it for some more participants, so come on and join up soon! It's going to be a fun competition-- I've tried to design it to give you a bit of the experience of what it's like to be a USCL manager.

3) Watch our TV coverage every Wednesday, with BrotherJosh, Danny, and me.

4) Watch the games in live. You will be able to find them in the seek graph (probably appearing in the upper right).

5) Check out the USCL's new website.

6) Follow my blog, I'll post more about the USCL here!

Thanks everyone! The league starts soon, so get into the Fantasy Competition, asap!!

    I am a super administrator for the New Jersey Chess Team on chess.com. If the members of the New Jersey team in the USCL would join our group I think our members would be very interested in following their games in the league. We have 364 members so they may well be able to generate a fan base.

    it's like fantasy sports: you pick a team, you choose which players you play each week, etc. follow the links to where i've written a full explanation.

    I don't understand what this is? Is this a league for playing chess? Not sure I follow what you mean by fantasy chess?
