About Us

Banner Chess is dedicated to promoting the game of chess in Arizona.

Our current mission is to revive the vibrant classical chess tournament circuit that once thrived in the state.

One of our primary goals is to increase the number of FIDE-rated chess players in Arizona.

To that end, we are currently partnering with Rising Star Chess to host FIDE-rated events in the Phoenix metro area.

We are willing to work with any club, organization, or individuals who share our goals and values. If you are interested in working with us to host or sponsor a tournament in your area, please contact us at: Banner Chess
