The finals are played each month with two group stages (A and B) with the top teams qualifying for the final. Matches are played as Arena team battles with 10 National teams in each match at 3|0 time control.
The England lichess English Players team won the inaugural Cup Event in February 2020 and has entered a team each month since then .
