Built for Organisers
More control over your online, hybrid or OTB chess tournaments & events.
Thank you as a chesser for designing such a platform. This tournament was a great experience for me. After receiving the IA title in 2015, I have been the chief arbiter many times. Everything was now automatic for me. I was doing my arbiter duties without thinking, reflexively. But with this tournament, I felt the excitement of the early days again. Something was both old and very new.
Tornelo is an amazing platform that is perfect for all online tournaments! It is very easy to use and makes things easy for participants. It is also safety-focused so no one is able to message any of my participants. I switched to Tornelo and all of my students had a blast!
Tornelo was built to make the lives of chess tournament organsiers easier. Efficiently setup, manage and run an event with just minutes of effort!
Tornelo gives the power to arbiters and organisers. Run the event YOUR way. This improves the event experience for players - ultimately ensuring more players, play more chess, more often.
The only platform where anonymity is prohibited, but privacy is protected. Online events and OTB events run the same way!

Online, Offline or Hybrid events
Tornelo was created on the cloud in 2008 as a web-based pairing program for over-the-board chess tournaments.
In early 2020 we added the capability for arbiters to run online events.
This makes us the natural choice for running hybrid chess events!
