The tournament takes place on a biennial basis (2013 – 2015 – 2017 – 2019) and the first three editions are hosted by the ZMDI Schachfestival Dresden e.V. (the Organizer).


The competition is an event only for disabled chess players and each world association (ICSC, IPCA, IBCA) regulates the conditions of participation. It will be held as an individual open tournament with a separate team ranking.

The teams may represent a national federation or any regional structure of a national federation. All the players must be members of the same federation, however this rule is void if all the members of the team are rated under 2100 or unrated. A registered player must be approved by his/her association or by the Chairman of the Disabled Commission of the FIDE.

Each team consists of four players. A provisional naming of the players has to be given together with the registration of the team. Changes in the team can be made until the drawing of lots.
