Sheffield International


No, not an airport, but an event partly aimed at facilitating the acquisition of IM norms which is being developed by Jonathan Arnott at the Sheffield Chess Centre, 329A Coleford Road, S9 5NF from 10th to 14th April 2024.


Besides the invitational “Masters” section which is a 9-round all-play-all (i.e. 10 players, some already GMs or IMS and the others hoping to take sufficient scalps to earn an IM norm) there is to be a 9-round FIDE-rated Open section.


The event has a website which at the time of writing is in its early stages of development: https://sheffieldchessinternational.uk/.
