ICCF Platinum Jubilee Events

The International Correspondence Chess Federation (ICCF) is the worldwide organisation for correspondence chess. It was founded in 1951 as a new appearance of the ICCA (International Correspondence Chess Association), which was founded in 1945, as successor of the IFSB (Internationaler Fernschachbund), founded in 1928.

In 2021, the ICCF celebrates its 70th anniversary.

The ICCF Executive Board (EB) to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the ICCF, according to its tradition (from the 50th and 60th anniversary), conducts several activities such as:

  1. Special Jubilee tournaments (world champions, elite players, ICCF officials, including events for postal players, elite 960 players) – start date 2021-03-15, duration about 2-4 years.
  2. Jubilee World Cups (regular and chess 960), separate events from the regular ICCF activities, carried out with the Silli system in 2 stages (preliminaries and final) over a 4-year period with special provisions for promotions – start date 2021-02-15.
