Tornelo has made organizing tournaments so easy and effective even my grandpa could do it. As a business owner I truly appreciate the positive value it's added for my company without any additional overhead.

Tornelo is hands-down the best platform for chess tournaments. Others just don't offer the control and features you really need to run a great event - especially with thousands of players. And it’s only getting better.
