    And as I just mentioned in my reply to Michael that simply maintains the status quo in regards to rapid and blitz.

    Unfortunately, I suspect none of the Money is likely to land in AUS.

    FIDE Transfer Regulations changed

    https://fide.com/news/931

    This is a major relief; the old system for transfers was appalling in every possible way.

    Call for submissions:
    FIDE Veterans Support Program 2021


    Dear Member Federations:

    The International Chess Federation is pleased to announce the continuation of its support to chess veterans. A number of grants will be awarded next month to distinguished players, coaches and organizers aged 65+. Anyone over this age, who has contributed to the development of chess and who is in an unstable financial situation, is eligible to submit an application.

    We invite federations, clubs, and players themselves to send their applications, including a CV of the nominee, to the FIDE Secretariat: office@fide.com. The deadline for submissions is March 1, 2021.

    The total amount to be distributed this year will largely depend on the donations received through the fundraising that we are holding alongside the first World Corporate Chess Championship, to be held February 19-21. In 2020, we allocated to this program an initial amount of €35.000, which was later expanded with an additional €21.000. Combined, this amounted to a total of €56.000, a record since FIDE launched this program in 2012.
