Call of Interest for ECU arbiters 2024

By | 26th December 2023

Dear colleagues,

The Call of Interest for arbiters who wish to be appointed as match arbiters in European events in 2024 is here! We are addressing International and FIDE Arbiters (IAs and FAs) who are under the flag of federations that are affiliated to the European Chess Union. As ECU Arbiters’ Council, we appoint 20% of the match arbiters in each European event and we select them based on their skills, experience and tournament preference.

This year, trying to constantly improve, we have introduced points for arbiters who have been Sector Arbiters in World or Continental events and we only consider private events of 9 rounds and standard time control, where it is possible for players to achieve norms (please note that you will be asked to provide the tournament link from the FIDE Rating Server).

You can find the regulations here.

Especially for this year, the deadline to apply is extended as following:

January 20th deadline for submitting applications

January 25th deadline for Federations to send any remarks on the published list
