Checkmate COVID

30 members

This is the lichess team for Checkmate COVID. Here, we host publicly available tournaments to help raise money for COVID-19 relief. We host frequent, open access tournaments through this team to raise funds for COVID-19 relief. The winner of each of our online tournaments wins prize-money, which they then donate to an approved COVID-19 relief charity of their choice. We also host limited access tournaments that are more involved and take place over a few days. The top finishers in these tournaments win a more significant amount of prize money (than winners of our open access tournaments) that they donate to an approved COVID-19 relief charity. Please help us continue to host these tournaments by donating at Every cent donated goes directly towards the top finishers in our tournaments and then, by extension, to Coronavirus relief charities. If you're interested in participating in our limited access tournaments, go to, where you can sign up for upcoming events. Help us beat COVID-19 through chess!
