tournament will take place April 27-May 3 this year, at the Elite Plaza Hotel in central Malmo. Eight players will play seven rounds, and the field will once again be one of the strongest ever, and perhaps also the most interesting!

The home team is, as usual, represented by Sweden’s number one, GM Nils Grandelius (winner in 2013, 2017 and 2018).

Among the opponents are last year’s winner and multiple World Championship contender, GM Peter Svidler, the current women’s world champion, GM Wenjun Ju, China, and GM Anton Korobov, Ukraine.

We also welcome three young chess players that are all among the 20 highest rated players in the world, all born in this century: GM Nodirbek Abdusattorov, Uzbekistan, as well as last year’s participants in the Tepe Sigeman Chess Tournament, GM Arjun Erigaisi, India, and GM Vincent Keymer, Germany. The very youngest participant is the current world junior champion, GM Marc’Andria Maurizzi, France (born in 2007).

This makes the 2024 field one of the strongest ever, and we would like to congratulate chess fans around the globe on the opportunity to see world-class chess live. You will be able to follow all games live, guided by our commentators, Swedish GM Stellan Brynell and French GM Laurent Fressinet. For those of you who are not able to visit Malmo and the Elite Plaza Hotel during the tournament, it will of course be possible to follow all games and the commentators live on the Internet (www.tepesigemanchess.com).

We would also like to thank all our sponsors, TePe, Sigeman & Co, the city of Malmö, Grenspecialisten, Elite Plaza Hotel in Malmö, Schackakademien, Max Matthiessen, Softhouse, Servicekuben and AWA Sweden, and all others who once again have contributed to making this traditional chess event come true.
