Welcome to the official ECU chess playing zone! Here, thousands of chess players gather to play individual and tournament games, follow and discuss top match broadcasts, join and organize teams, take or give lessons.
The access to the playing zone is free - just download and run one of the client programs below. Free users can play, chat, store and analyze games, and play in tournaments on Wednesdays. To get unlimited access to the tournaments and other advanced functions, buy one of the ECU Playing Zone membership packages. Alternatively, if you are an IM or GM, send a scan of your FIDE certificate and your Playing Zone username to email@example.com.
