Update regarding call for applications (deadline 28 September)

Dear all chess juniors and chess parents

Please note that the regulations released by the tournament organisers (on the FIDE and tournament websites) for this year’s event currently contain a new rule regarding team eligibility (highlighted in bold).

A team consists of 5 players (4 players and 1 reserve)  at least one of whom must be a girl.

However, the official invitation provided by the organisers to the ACF did not contain this requirement. We are currently seeking clarification of this issue.
