Antwerp and its university have a long standing tradition with mind sports with former Rector Walter Decleir as chairman of the FISU CT Chess from 1996 to 2007 and Geert Magerman as chairman of the FISU CT Bridge from 2003 until today. Antwerp also hosted the FISU World University Championship Chess in 1992 and the University of Antwerp co-hosted the EUSA European University Bridge Championship in 2007. In 2022, Antwerp will be again the host for the FISU World University Championships Mind Sports (Bridge and Chess). To honor the legacy of the persons and events mentioned before, the University of Antwerp decided to establish the PCU International University Chess Cup and to partner with the PCU Committee to ensure an extended international chess network and with the Antwerp Chess League to ensure the best possible local framework. President of the Chess Cup Organisation Committee is Dr. Koenraad Keignaert, Head of Student Services at the University of Antwerp.
