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.

Debuting at the World Championship Candidates Tournament held in London in 2013, these chessmen have become the standard for tournament pieces. Designed by the internationally renowned Pentagram architect Daniel Weil, these 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.
