This epoch-making battle draws some similarities with golf’s Ryder Cup, or with the 1970 «USSR vs. Rest of the World» chess match-up that made headlines in Bobby Fischer’s heyday. But the new «match of the century» will be more global, entirely online, and also gender-inclusive, since the team line-ups must include at least one female player.

A retired legend, Garry Kasparov, will be the captain for the European team, while his former world championship rival, Vishwanathan Anand, will defend the first board of the Indian team.
