The decision on the transition of the Russian Chess Federation (RCF) from the European Federation to the Asian Federation (ACF) will be taken on February 28. This was reported to TASS on Wednesday by the FSR press service.
“The decision on the transition from the CFR to the Asian Chess Federation will be taken on February 28 at a meeting of the ACF Continental Assembly,” the CRF said. The decision to move to was unanimously adopted by the Supervisory Board of the FSR on April 14, 2022. Currently, the ACF includes chess federations from 54 countries.
The Constitutional Commission of the International Chess Federation (FIDE), which studied the possibility of the transition from the FSR to the ACF, found no violation in said transition and issued its recommendations. Based on these recommendations, the FIDE board should decide that the FSR can be moved from Europe to Asia.
“Now the transition process can be completed at the Continental Assembly of the Asian Chess Federation. The decision on the transition will be made by delegates at the ACF summit on February 28. The delegation of the Russian Chess Federation at the summit will be headed by the President of the Russian Chess Federation Andrey Filatov,” the press service of the Russian Chess Federation said.
The ACF Summit will take place in Abu Dhabi from February 26 to March 3.
