Chess24 acquires broadcast rights to FIDE events until 2026

When Magnus Carlsen joins David Howell and Tania Sachdev to commentate on the Candidates Tournament today he’ll do so with full live video coverage of the players in Yekaterinburg. Those rights are part of a 6-year agreement with the World Chess Federation FIDE for footage of the most important events. The deal sees our sister site Chessable become sponsors of the Candidates Tournament and the full World Championship cycle, while also contributing to a new chess talent development program, the FIDE Chessable Youth Development Fund.
