MITROPA Team at the World Team Rapid Championship

Any interested player belonging to Mitropa countries may apply to be a member of this team by sending one email to

Mitropa will potentially try to line up a team with a player from each Federation (with nine in total), in respect of the regulations (one female player and one recreational player shall be enlisted), but this will also depend according to availability.

We ask you to send your interest to take part no later than June 5th, 2023.
