Women’s Chess World championship
At the end of the month, on September 26, the FIDE World Women's Team Championship 2021 starts in Sitges, a coastal town in Spain's Catalonia region famous for eight editions of a popular chess open, "Sunway Chess". Now, the first time, Sitges is hosting an official FIDE event.
The 8th edition of the FIDE World Women's Team Championship will run from September 26 to October 3 in a new, more spectator-friendly format. Instead of the usual round-robin, the twelve teams will be divided into two pools of approximately equal strength. Four top teams from each pool (round-robin event of five rounds) qualify to the knockout playoff. In the knockout, each duel consists of two matches and the tie is broken by blitz matches, just like at the recent Online Olympiad. The time control will be shorter than usual, too,—45 minutes for the whole game with an increment of 10 seconds per move starting from the first move.
