The tournament was held thanks to the generous support of Caplin Systems, who also support the Hastings Congress. The event has also received financial support from the English Chess Federation, The Chess Trust, and the Friends of Chess.

The event was dedicated to the memory of Vera Menchik (1906-44) who was the first Women’s World Chess Champion, as well as the longest reigning champion, gaining the title at aged 21 and defending it multiple times until her untimely death.
