About Us

Welcome to the Emerald City Chess Club, the official chess club for the University of Oregon. We currently meet every Tuesday from 6-9 PM in the EMU Fishbowl (at the center of the U of O campus).

The Emerald City Chess Club is committed to bringing chess back into the spotlight at the University of Oregon and in Eugene. Along with our weekly meetings, we organize chess tournaments and other chess related events so that the student body and residents of the Eugene/Springfield area can experience competitive chess here in Eugene instead of having to travel up to Portland to play in a tournament. Our main goal here at ECCC is to make Eugene a great chess city.
