Final group

In the first phase, groups consisting of 10 teams played single round-robin tournaments. The groups were formed according to the average rating of the four (4) regular players, with the FIDE March 2021 rating list taken in account. Two teams from each group qualified to the playoffs.

In the playoffs, three groups of 6 teams were formed. Three teams from each group moved on to the final, a 10-team single round robin which includes the winners of the European Women’s Clup Cup, Cercle d’Echecs de Monte-Carlo.

Every game is played with a time control of 15 minutes for the game plus 5-second increments per move.
