Francois Riva Memorial Team Tournament

On behalf of the ICCF, I’m pleased to announce the VI. ICCF Team Tournament for players rated <2300 – here in memoriam Francois Riva.

All ICCF member federations (that are not currently suspended) are invited to enter their teams to this event, which will be played on the ICCF web-server on two rounds: semi-final and final.

The first three teams in the final will receive medals.

Each federation may enter two teams. All players on the team must be rated <2300 on the ICCF rating list 2023/2 or on the current FIDE list. In addition all players must be full members of the federation they represent or be registered on the ICCF server for the country of the federation they represent for the duration of the tournament.

The preliminaries will start on July 1st, 2023.

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 Non-Title Tournaments Commissioner and approved by the Executive Board at the start of the tournament. The intention will be for a 13 Team final.

The entry fee will be at the rate of € 4 per player, i.e. € 24 per team. There will be no further entry fee for the final.

Time control will be Triple Block (Duration of Tournament: 700 days; Initial Clock: 50 days; Initial Bank: 50 days; Increment: 5 days).
Please note - without guaranteed time in the semi-final and in the final with guaranteed time.

Team entries have to be sent by the national federations to the Non-Title Tournament Commissioner Jörg Kracht (nttc@iccf.com) not later than June 12th, 2023. No replacement or board change will be allowed after that date, unless exceptional circumstances occur. All entries should include the following details:

 -  board order
 -  name and ICCF code of the players
 -  name, ICCF code and e-mail address of the Team Captain

New players will have a rating of 1800 ELO and FIDE rated players will have FIDE if their FIDE rating is over 1800 ELO (otherwise they will be considered new ICCF players).
