Call of Interest

Call of interest for ECU arbiters

During the European Chess Union General Assembly in Batumi, Georgia (26 October 2019), the delegates unanimously approved the proposal by ECU Arbiters’ Council regarding the system of appointments of arbiters for the ECU events. According to the new regulations, the ECU Arbiters’ Council will have a right to appoint foreign arbiters (20% of all match arbiters) for each ECU events. It means that first time ever a part of arbiters’ team will be nominated directly by the Arbiters’ Council. It gives us a possibility to create on European level a nomination system for arbiters, based on qualification, experience and evaluations of arbiters.

Therefore we are announced the call of interest for the arbiters who are interested to be appointed for ECU events in 2020.

The appointments will be made according to the relevant Regulations which can be found here.

Any qualified (FA or IA) arbiter, having a regular arbiter’s license, registered under any Federation included in ECU Statute Annex 1 may apply for one or more ECU official championship by submitting his application directly through the Arbiters’ Council website.

The Call of Interest ended on January 10th 2020. It is no longer possible to send an application. List of interested arbiters below:
