The Glorney and Faber Cups are international chess team competitions for players aged under 18. The Glorney Cup was originally sponsored by Dublin businessman, Mr C. Parker Glorney, and the Faber Cup by Faber Books, but they are now entirely financed by the hosting national chess federations.

Selection for the Glorney and Faber and Four Nations teams is regarded as a high point in the career of a junior chess player. It confirms their status as one of the top junior chess players in their country and gives them valuable experience against their counterparts in other European countries.

Congratulations to the players who have been selected to take part in the Glorney and Faber / Four Nations Championships taking place in Glasgow. The event is being organised this year by Chess Scotland and will be held in Glasgow’s Strathclyde University.
