This page, which we update regularly, lists Senior tournaments in 2019 (and later) of which we aware, with links where available. Please note that recently announced changes and new additions to the list are marked below with an asterisk (*).

The European Chess Union calendar recently changed to show that the venue for the European Senior Team Championships will indeed be the Adriatic island of Mali Losinj, Croatia, but there are no details yet.

If you know of other Senior tournaments, please inform us and we shall include them.

For tournaments in 2019 the qualifying dates for the two FIDE age groups are 31 December 1954 (for 65+) and 31 December 1969 (for 50+). You do not have to wait for your birthday; you are qualified from 1 January in the year in which you reach the qualifying age.
