Own a piece of history with the Official World Chess Championship Chess Set — the only chess set approved by FIDE for the World Chess Championship cycle events.
This is exactly the same set as the one used in the 2018 Carlsen — Caruana Match and three previous World Chess Championship Matches. Debuting at the World Championship Candidates Tournament held in London in 2013, these chessmen have become the standard for tournament pieces.
The board and pieces are designed by the internationally renowned Pentagram architect Daniel Weil.
The Chess Pieces are based on the proportions of classical Greek architecture and the classic Staunton design to make a set that is both distinctive and traditional. Championship size.
The Chess Board is made from Maple wood (light squares) and Rosewood (dark squares) sized 50 x 50 mm. Underside finished in natural wood. World Chess hexagon logo inlaid in wood on both sides. Championship size.
