Керівник європейської зони ICCF досить несподівано оголосив про початок нових змагань – 1-й європейський кубок серед ветеранів First EU Senior Cup. Хоча цього змагання немає в календарі ICCF-Europe, мабуть, цікаво було б поборотись за такий почесний титул.
За схемою організації масового турніру він копіює світовий ветеранський кубок ICCF з деякими відмінностями, а саме:
Більш жорсткий контроль часу – 30 днів на 10 ходів;
Відсутність призового фонду;
Для призерів у фіналі будуть вручені крім медалей три спеціальні кубки;
Турнірний внесок складає 4,68 євро напряму (Direсt Entry) або 155,00 грн на розрахунковий рахунок ФЗШУ.
Реєстрація здійснюється через сайт ICCF до 1 червня 2021 року, а при сплаті через рахунок ФЗШУ – до 25 травня 2021 року.
