    International Tournament Invitations

    This is a new thread where I'll post details of tournament invitations that are emailed or otherwise provided to me in my roles as FIDE Delegate and ACF Vice-President. I will not go out of my way to repost attachments to such messages, but interested players can email me ( if they would like the full email sent to them.

    Note that where organisers allow representatives of a federation to qualify for goodies such as accommodation, and the number of such goodies is limited, then the ACF may need to conduct a selection process. Subscribe to the ACF Newsletter for details of upcoming selection deadlines. A player interested in asking to be appointed to such an event can also contact me and I'll pass it on to either the ACF Council or Selections Director as appropriate.

    This is a locked thread. Posters wanting to discuss anything on it or anything related to international tournament invitations should do so on the unlocked Tournament Invitations Discussion Thread

    Organisers wishing to have their tournaments mentioned in this thread should send me full tournament details a minimum of two months before the tournament begins in an email text that can be easily copied to a thread and contains a web link to a downloadable brochure. If I receive details so late that I don't think anyone would be interested, I will not post them.

    To make this thread more useful I will be deleting events after they have finished so that the thread only displays upcoming events.
