FIDE distributes €30,000 among veterans


After carefully considering the numerous applications received, the special panel appointed by the FIDE Council decided that these will be the twelve chess players, coaches, and promoters to benefit from FIDE's support to chess veterans:

Sergey Makarychev (Russia)
Tamaz Giorgadze (Georgia)
Hanna Erenska-Barlo (Poland)
Roman Hernandez (Cuba)
Avigdor Bykhovsky (Israel)
Juzefs Petkevich (Latvia)
Anatoly Noskov (Kazakhstan)
Bosko Abramovic (Serbia)
Jan Kalendovsky (Czech Republic)
Nina Medyanikova (Russia)
Julio Ostos (Venezuela)
Irina Ostry (Kyrgyzstan)

A total of €30.000 will be distributed among these seniors with each person from the list receiving €2,500.

Depending on the situation by summer 2021, FIDE will either increase a prize fund in veteran championships this year or distribute more awards to our distinguished veterans.
