On the 30th May 2020 Essex played its first online match, an inter Anglia affair as a warm up for the inaugural ECF online County Championships. This fixture was played on the chess.com Club Match platform with Norfolk as the home team. A somewhat random affair by virtue of the board order set automatically by chess.com to its online rapid ratings as opposed to standard ratings or grading. The Championships however will be played by way of a series of individual board challenges (using ECF standard ratings and then standard grades) and can be followed on this LMS at https://ecflms.org.uk/lms/node/60070/home

On the 27th June 2020 Essex U1825 squad divided into Essex Marauders and Essex All starts for an inter team match, during a break in the Online County Championships.
