The principal tasks of the WCBO include: training people in the number one thinking sport and the number one fighting sport and the combination of both; building up a worldwide structure of chess boxing clubs and organisations; promoting chess boxing; and holding championship and promotional fights.
Currently, there are two organisations that are affiliated to the WBCO:
the Chess Boxing Club Berlin (founded in August 2005)
the Bulgarian Chess Boxing Organisation (founded in October 2005)
The WCBO's motto is: "Fighting is done in the ring and wars are waged on the board".
