I believe online arenas represent a breath of fresh air for the international and national chess scene, and not only online but also over the board. The official arenas have a hugely positive impact as they allow you to train with Grandmasters and top instructors which is crucial for chess players of every level and age to improve their game. The playing platform is of superb quality and the anti-cheating protection ensures FIDE ratings are authentic which allows me to play with complete confidence in every game.

My experience with the Premium Chess FIDE online arena so far has been amazing. To be able to play with official FIDE ratings at home is fantastic especially for those rapid chess lovers. The graphics and customization of the boards and pieces is a great touch.

This is my favorite chess platform. So far I’ve played more than 6,000 matches and competed in over 80 Premium tournaments. Since upgrading I have played and learnt from many Grand Masters which has helped my ranking go up significantly.

For me the most important thing is the anti-cheating monitoring technology. It means that no matter who I play, I can be sure that the game is fair. Given some of the unfortunate incidents in recent chess events it is critical for all chess players to be able to compete in a fair environment. This is truly an excellent new feature for chess.

Beautiful setup and fast connections. It’s easy to find matches and enter tournaments with official ratings. Of all the chess websites Premium Chess is by far my favourite platform.

I have been playing chess for over 50 years and Premium Chess is the best online site I have ever used because it uses official FIDE ratings and makes sure no one can cheat in tournaments. Since becoming an FIDE online arena member I can play in top tournaments and against Grand Masters.

I often compete in the FIDE arena and have never had a problem with any of the matches or tournaments. I would recommend Premium chess to anyone who truly values a system that prevents cheats and promoted fair play.

Being able to play in official tournaments when it is difficult to travel is why I play on here the most.
