All dates are approximate dates and can vary by 2-3 days backwards or forward. The new schedule allows all IECG players to start in WC stages as well as in Cup stages.
Due to the non-availability of a Chess Server for IECG Tournaments during the past months, we had to modify timings for some stages in different cycles.
With the new schedule, we have the following alignment for the oncoming and running IECG WC Cycles:
