The 2010 World Team Chess Championships starts on 5 January in Bursa, Turkey.

The format is a nine-team round-robin competition, with each team selecting four players from a squad of six.  The time control is FIDE's fairly speedy 40 moves in 90 mins, then 30 mins to a finish, and a 30 second increment from the start.

The national teams are a mix of qualifiers and invitees from around the world, with India replacing China who were late withdrawals.
