Title Verification

If you are a professional over-the-board chess player, you may have already earned a Chess Title!

If you have a FIDE title or a National title, we can add it to your NCH account, however you will need to prove that you are who you claim to be, and that you have the title in question. You can choose to remain anonymous towards other users.

To verify your title, please complete this form. If you have any problems, contact us.
