After two years of absence, the World Team Chess Championship 2022 is finally making a grand return. The latest iteration of the highly acclaimed FIDE World Team Chess Championship is getting started this November 19th.
World Team Chess Championship is an international-level chess event. The event made its debut in 1985 under the authorization of the FIDE. However, the biannual chess event was postponed in 2021 due to the covid-19 pandemic.
