    1st May 2009
    Second ICCF Veterans World Cup



    In April 2008, ICCF started the first Veterans World Cup, which is being organised by the Czech CCA in memoriam of Stanislav Foglar. It is nearing the completion of the preliminary stage whereafter, winners of the 13 sections, will qualify for the 1st Veterans World Cup Final.



    The 2008 ICCF Congress in Pleven, Bulgaria decided that following the great popularity of the tournament amongst older players, a new Veterans World Cup should be started every year, beginning in 2009. The Scottish CCA offered to organise this and subsequent tournaments on behalf of ICCF, working in collaboration with the ICCF Non Title Tournament’s Commissioner. A special cup trophy will be provided by the Scottish CCA to ICCF for the winner of the event.



    The Second ICCF Veterans World Cup will be “In Memoriam of Gerhard Radosztics”, who was a distinguished delegate for Austria, ICCF officer and great friend, for over 20 years.



    Unlike the first tournament, the 2nd VWC will be organised in three stages, which will allow several players from each group stage to advance to the Semi-finals & Final. The number of promotions will depend on the total of entries received, but groups at each stage will comprise of 13 players (12 games) played by webserver with a rate of play of 10 moves in 40 days.



    ICCF Veterans World Cups are open to all players who are 60 years old or more at the start of the tournament. The 2nd Veterans World Cup will be started on 1st September 2009. Although the number of preliminary groups which each player may enter is unlimited, no player will qualify for more than two Semi-final groups or more than one place in the Final.



    The Entry Fee for players entering through National Federations is CHF 20 per section. The Direct Entry Fee is CHF 30, or the equivalent value of alternative currency selected by player, which is stated during the DE registration process. Direct Entry is available to all players from countries whose National Federations participate in the ICCF Direct Entry Scheme



    Entries, containing players name, date of birth, Email address, ICCF ID and current rating, should be sent by Email via the player’s National Federation and thereafter to the Tournament Organiser Alan P. Borwell, Email:- alanborwell@iccf.com, to reach him before 17th July 2009.

    It would be appreciated if Federations will send entries “as received”, and not at closing date.



    Entries from players who countries participate in the ICCF Direct Entry Scheme should send their entries, through the DE system. Closing date for Direct Entries will be 31st July 2009.



    All veteran chess players are heartily invited to enter this tournament, both for the enjoyment of games and friendly contact/communication with senior players round the World.



    Member Federations are asked to give the tournament wide publicity to veteran players.
