German Bundesliga 2019/20



The German Bundesliga season 2019/20 is held in different cities across Germany from November 2019 to April 2020.
Schachbundesliga was founded by the German Chess Federation in 1973. In the 1974/75 season it started with four regional groups of eight teams. In the end, the four group leaders determined the champions. The present form of the Bundesliga - group of 16 teams, started in 1980.
The Bundesliga is the world’s top chess league, and although the 16 teams compete for the German Championship it attracts the world’s best players. The teams play with each other  in a round-robin format over a season. Each team consists of 8 players from a starting list of 18. A match win earns two team points, while a draw wins one.
Time control is 100 minutes for the first 40 moves and 50 for the rest of the game with a 30-second increment.
The season is split into seven weekend double rounds, starting on Saturdays at 2 pm and on Sundays at 10 am. The Bundesliga is played in four changing venues around Germany  - the rounds from 13th to 15th are held in Berlin.
