Africa Chess has partnered with Chess.com to run a daily blitz tournament on the platform with prizes sponsored by chess.com for qualifying players. This tournament will run every single day from 2000 hrs to 2100 hrs with a time control of 2+2. Prize winners in the tournament who are members of the Africa Chess Club on Chess.com and our other social media groups will be eligible for prizes in the form of diamond membership for a month. 

Absolutely anyone can play in the tournament but only Africa Chess members will be able to win the prizes.  The tournaments have been running in test mode for a while now but today is the formal launch of the blitz tournaments on chess.com. It is a great opportunity to bring more chess players into the game of chess and to expand the game across the continent. 

Chess.com is currently the biggest online chess platform in the world with over 20 million members and it will give our members a fantastic opportunity to enjoy some of the premium features on the website. The prizes will be sponsored by chess.com We are very grateful for this opportunity. 

These are definitely exciting times to be an African chess player with opportunities like this coming. We hope see you at our next Africa Chess Swiss event at 2000 hrs. See you then.
