The fourth international chess tournament in a series of six organized by the GMA from 1988 to 1989 as a World Cup was held in Barcelona, Spain from March 20th to April 20th, 1989. Twenty-four of the world's best grandmasters, including the world champion and world vice-champion, were invited to participate in the World Cup, seventeen of them appearing in Barcelona's category XV event along with one national grandmaster to represent Spain as host.
