FIDE Online World Cadets & Youth Rapid Chess Championship

The Australian Chess Federation has been invited to nominate Australian representatives for a new event: the FIDE Online World Cadets & Youth Rapid Chess Championship. Please see further details (including how to apply) below. The deadline for applications is Saturday 7th November. 

----------------------

Just after the publication of Newsletter 595, the ACF received an invitation to nominate Australian representatives to contest a new online competition, aimed at the younger members of the chess community: the FIDE Online World Cadets & Youth Rapid Chess Championships.

Extracts from the organiser’s announcement include:
  • This event will comprise five different age groups (U10, U12, U14, U16 and U18), competing in two sections: open and girls.
  • A selection stage will take place between November 27 and December 13, with the finals on December 19-23.
  • In the selection stage, every FIDE Continent will run a 7-round Swiss tournament for each one of the categories (U10 open, U10 girls, et cetera). Each Member Federation can register one player per each category and, besides, players ranked Continental top-10 in each one of the categories is also invited.
  • The time control for the selection stage will be 10 minutes + 3 seconds increment starting from the first move.
  • The first three winners per category for each FIDE continent will be qualified to the final stage. This will consist of ten separate knock-out tournaments of 16 players. The 15 players who qualified at the selection stage will be joined by one player invited by the organizer among the first four-ranked in the world for their age group.
  • Please note that the time control for the finals will be slightly different than during the selection stage, being increased to 15 minutes + 10 seconds.
  • The participants for each championship must not have reached their 10th, 12th, 14th, 16th, and 18th birthday, respectively, before January 1st of the year 2020.
  • Registrations will be by the National Chess Federations through registration forms at www.world2020.ge.

The organiser’s schedule for participants from FIDE’s Asian Continental division (i.e. Australian players) is as follows:
Please note the starting times and dates for Australian-based players who qualify for the finals.
