Important conditions for entry.

 

FIDE-rated sections

(a) Players whose FIDE registration is England (ENG) must be ECF Silver members.

(b) Players whose FIDE registration is Wales (WLS), Scotland (SCO), Ireland (IRL), Guernsey (GCI) or Jersey (JCI) do not need ECF membership at all.

(c) Players whose FIDE registration is something other than one of the above countries must be ECF Silver members.

 

Where a player has no FIDE registration, then they must choose a Federation, and the relevant rule of (a), (b) or (c) above will apply.

 

ECF-graded sections

(a) Players resident in England or Isle of Man must be ECF Silver members.

(b) Players resident in Wales, Scotland, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Guernsey or Jersey do not need to be ECF Silver members.

(c) Players resident in any other country outside the British Isles must be ECF Silver members.

 

The ECF's Obligations

If the conditions above are met, then the ECF will:-

(a) ECF-grade or FIDE-rate the event as appropriate for the relevant section, as normal.

(b) Not charge any Pay to Play charges in respect of the event.

This is a change from the present arrangements, where the ECF invoices your tournament as if it were just another Rapidplay tournament.

 

NB. The above only applies to the 4 main tournaments - NOT the Junior tournaments
