In Europe, each country organizes a team league, which are known highly competitive like Bundesliga in Germany or Top 12 in France as an example.

Is there similar competition in North America (Canada, US) inside the states?

Yes there is a chess league in the US, but it does not have the sponsorship you see in Europe. Check the USCF website, and this more specific site http://uschessleague.com/

  • What team league does the USCF run? The closest thing the USCF has is the amateur team tournaments. We don't have anything like the team leagues in Europe unfortunately. Jul 18, 2018 at 17:56
  • US Chess League I believe is defunct, and replaced by the Pro Chess League on chess.com. Jul 20, 2018 at 1:31
  • Coolest thing I've seen today en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Professional_Rapid_Online_Chess_League
