Call for submissions: FIDE launches veterans support program


The International Chess Federation is pleased to announce the continuation of its support to chess veterans. A number of stipends for a total amount of 20,000 Euro will be awarded next month to distinguished players and trainers 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 receive this support.

We invite federations, clubs, and players themselves to send their applications, including a CV of the nominee, to the FIDE Secretariat: The deadline for submissions is April 5, 2020.
