The World Cities Chess Team Championship will take place on 22-28 December in Al Ain, United Arab Emirates.

The teams will be grouped into four categories. The host city is seeded into the 1st Category quadrant among the top 6 teams. Next 6 teams form the 2nd Category followed by teams 13 to 18 in the 3rd Category and teams 19 to 24 in the 4th Category.
