22nd Correspondence Chess Olympiad Preliminaries
Sunday, September 15, 2019: On behalf of the ICCF, I’m pleased to announce the 22nd Correspondence Chess Olympiad.
All ICCF Member Federations (that are not currently suspended) are invited to enter their team to this event, wich will be played on the ICCF web-server on two rounds: Preliminaries and Final. Each Federation may enter only one team.
The Preliminaries will start on January 13th, 2020.
There will be 6 players in each team. A maximum of 3 players may be replaced during the tournament.
The right to be promoted from the preliminaries shall be determined by the ICCF Title Tournament Commissioner and approved by the Executive Board at the start of the tournament (ICCF Rule 188.8.131.52.7).
The entry fee will be at the rate of € 15 per player, i.e. € 90 per team. There will be no further entry fee for the Final.
Team entries have to be sent by the National Federations to the Title Tournament Commissioner Gian-Maria Tani (email@example.com) not later than December 3rd, 2019.
No replacement or board change will be allowed after that date, unless exceptional circumstances occur.
All entries should include the following details:
name, ICCF code and e-mail address of the players
name, ICCF code and e-mail address of the Team Captain
For title norm purposes, rating numbers will be taken from the ICCF Rating List 2020/1 or from the current FIDE Rating List.
FIDE Ratings will be treated as „unfixed“ for title norm purposes. Players who have no ICCF fixed rating nor FIDE rating will be allocated with a provisional rating of 2400.
