All players are invited to apply, newcomers to ICCF and experienced players as well. Players may enter in the usual way through their National Federations (NF) or, where eligible, via the ICCF Direct Entry system. Entry fee is a regular one for a world cup (http://www.iccf-webchess.com/Message.aspx?message=336) and depends on NF (if applied through NF).
Excellent prizes (prize 2000€ for the first 4 players) and special qualifications for a World Championship, much more beneficial than usual (because of ICCF Diamond Jubilee) are available in this tournament!
The winner of the Diamond World Cup will qualify for a World Championship final, next three followers (place 2-4) for World Championship Candidates! This is the easiest way to win so high qualifications!
Don't wait, just go to "New events" and make application (through DE or NF)!
