The Championships consist of a pairs tournament and a teams tournament. Transnational combinations are allowed.

The Pairs Championship comprises 3 qualifying sessions, followed by a 2-session final and a consolation tournament.

The Teams will be played as a Swiss tournament with a knockout ending for the top teams: after twelve 10-board rounds, the top four teams will advance to the semifinals (and then to the final and the 3rd-place playoff - all played over 32 boards), while the rest will play 4 more Swiss rounds.
