Chess is played all over the world. The international governing body of chess is FIDE, established in 1924. Most national chess federations are now members of FIDE; several supranational chess organizations are also affiliated with FIDE.

National level: Current FIDE members[edit]

The table below lists the member federations of FIDE[1] and their national championship. The number of grandmasters and players registered for each federation in the FIDE database, as of January 2024, are also indicated.[2]
