How to support TCEC

TCECTCEC (Top Chess Engine Championship) is a top computer chess tournament that aims at very high quality chess, using long time controls, played strictly between between chess engines created by different developers/programmers. TCEC is broadcast live and has a large regular audience. There have been already 11 past seasons of TCEC and the 12th one is on its way, thanks to the support of our great community. This support is essential to keep TCEC going and help us to improve our high quality standards. If you too enjoy TCEC, this is how you can support our work:

Direct support

Donations and direct support are the main way the TCEC championship gets funded. This is also the fastest and easiest one time per season method. Every small support matters. To use this method go to the official website and click the “paypal” button at the upper right hand corner or the “donate” button below the chat, both lead to the same place.


The Twitch TV subscription plans start at $5/month. Although a large amount is retained by the video platform, it is still a comfortable method which besides supporting TCEC is also providing status in the chat platform of the website. To complete a subscription go to the TCEC Twitch page

Banners and advertising

Visiting the banners and sponsors on the TCEC webpage on a daily basis is the easy and free method to support TCEC. Although it might look small at first sight, the size of the community matters.

TCEC is of course looking for a direct sponsor of this season or future seasons, if you have ideas and suggestions please get in touch with the organizers.
