The Turkish Team Championship (1st Chess League) was inaugurated in 1995. In 2004, it changed its name to Super League, but after the Turkish Isbank assumed sponsorship in 2006, the name was changed once more to the Turkish Isbank Chess League. 36 grandmasters and 86 titled players in all were present in Konya. The top boards include top players such as GM Pavel Eljanov (UKR, 2712), GM Rustam Kasimdzhanov (UZB, 2685), GM Ernesto Inarkiev (RUS, 2679), GM Liviu Dieter Nisipeanu (ROU, 2662), GM Evgenij Miroshnichenko (UKR, 2651), GM Boris Savchenko (RUS, 2630), GM Mikheil Mchedlishvili (GEO, 2629) and others. Each team consists of ten boards: the first four boards of every team are the titled players, followed by a female, a junior, U16 boy and girl tables, and U14 boy and girl tables.
